Verdict

Last year's winner Levitate is 16lb higher this time round and 2011 winner Sweet Lightning returns from racing in Dubai. There's been strong support for Gabrial's Kaka, who went close in this grade at York when last seen at the track, while stablemate Hi There got his act together last term but a low draw is not ideal. The progressive Chookie Royale and the well-backed Tullius have no easy task at the top of the weights, though the latter has gone well fresh before. Off Art rattled up a treble early last year but hasn't raced since June. Norse Blues popped up at 50/1 in the Spring Mile here in 2012 but Tres Coronas and Bronze Angel could have been better drawn and the ground appears to have gone against Consign. UNSINKABLE was eased down in the closing stages of his recent comeback for a new yard. He acts in soft ground, has a favourable draw and the unexposed four-year-old looks to have been laid out for this by Jonjo O'Neill.
