Verdict

Benbecula was sent off a short-priced favourite over a longer trip here last time but found one too good and is looking to make amends. It could be the same story today, however, as KHAREZI was having only his fourth start when runner-up over C&D last month and he's fancied to find enough improvement to open his account in this. Busted Tycoon is another likely improver as she wasn't beaten far despite finishing seventh on her debut while Hanamizuki and Legal Lyric are others with plenty of scope.
