Verdict

Call Me Bubbles is fit from racing and winning over hurdles. He's scored twice on the Flat before but is an unknown when it comes to fast ground. Last year's Cesarewitch winner, Domination, makes more appeal though he's been below par in a couple of starts so far this term. Abou Ben is progressing well and beat Admiral Barry over 2m at Limerick recently while Tiger At Heart and Ozeta may improve tackling today's longer trip on the Flat for the first time but JUSTIFICATION deserves another chance. He ran nowhere near his best behind Well Sharp in last week's Ascot Stakes but a repeat of his earlier effort when only beaten four lengths in the Chester Cup should see him go close in this.
