Verdict

Caesaria made a winning debut over the course and distance in March but has finished last on her two latest starts in handicaps and appears to need testing ground. Great Soprano has been running well though over longer trips, a remark that also applies to Jumbo Steps, who hasn't dropped below 7f for two years. Further rain would suit Kanes Pass, who thrives on ground with plenty of give, but if the going remains good then TYLERY WONDER will take some beating. Willie McCreery's charge won here last month and ran a fine race despite an 8lb rise on a return visit where he led for most of the way. Invincible Ridge is very closely matched with the selection having been beaten less than two lengths by him in that penultimate run and finishing almost upsides last time.
