Verdict

Naalatt is running well and is possibly well handicapped on Turf at present but Sennockian Star has been struggling to get his head in front and is now tried in blinkers. The booking of Kieren Fallon for David's Secret catches the eye and he could go close if fully wound-up but Eordium may have a few pounds too much on his return to Turf. Secret Art also looks high enough in the weights considering he is still a maiden so we'll take STRONG CONVICTION to recapture the winning thread. He didn't do a lot wrong when second at Nottingham last month and is only a pound higher now. Guilded Spirit couldn't justify favouritism in a Warwick maiden and this is much tougher.
