Verdict

Roman Eagle has had a light campaign but wasn't disgraced behind Maraheb at Haydock last month and enters the reckoning here. Right Step appears to be going backwards, however, and Con Artist hasn't been seen since disappointing badly when favourite for his reappearance at Newmarket in May. Goodwood winner Ramona Chase has improved a little lately but it's difficult to see how he can turn around Sandown running last month with Silver Grey on worse terms. Romeo Montague is probably a little high in the weights now so we'll take COLOUR SCHEME to add to his Yarmouth success as that win will have done his confidence the world of good.
