Verdict

Brighton specialist Beacon Lady was entered to run yesterday at Goodwood and may be too high in the weights now. Swift Blade made an encouraging comeback at Windsor and should strip fitter here while Gran Maestro rarely runs a bad race and has each-way claims again in this. But the booking of leading amateur Simon Walker for AZRAG looks significant and Gerard Butler's charge can follow up Thursday's Wolverhampton win under the same jockey. Getabuzz is probably fairly treated at present but hasn't really sparkled in his last three starts.
