Verdict

Mostawfee came here for only the third time a fortnight ago and produced his best run to date when just failing to hold Boxer Dunford. It will be a surprise if he's not in the mix but Sleepy Head has improved on very testing ground recently and her earlier form here was nothing special. CRESENDO was in fine form here last winter, scoring over track and trip in December, and though having had just two runs this summer should be ready for this and make a successful return to his favourite track. Shelbe is very versatile having won over 1m2f and 5f here and only narrowly failed to get up over this trip two weeks ago.
