Verdict

Michael Halford's yard will be on a high after Casamento's Racing Post Trophy success and they won this last year. NIDIAN looks the best of their two runners here and though taking his time to lose his maiden tag he won't get many better opportunities. Ibelieveinmiracles is also a long-time maiden who should have won by now but he's run well enough on this track to warrant respect. An Saighdiur has run four times here and has never been beaten far. He's definitely one with realistic chances while Majestic Pearl has also produced some decent performances here though an extra furlong wouldn't have gone amiss. Little Luxury is another whose best form has been over further.
