Verdict

Energize has run his best races over this trip but the handicapper has done him no favours raising him 3lb for a recent second at Chester. JANE LACHATTE, on the other hand, is a pound lower than when finishing third at Doncaster last month. Already a course winner, Stuart Williams' filly can get back to winning ways this evening though Welsh Nayber looks a threat on his close-up second at Brighton while Hyperlink won on good to soft ground at Goodwood but is becoming difficult to predict. Ermyn Flyer may be the pick of the remainder as Chrissycross disappointed last time and Hector's Chance has to prove himself on Turf.
