Verdict

David Evans runs three in this modest handicap but jockey bookings suggest Sommersturm is the stable selection. He's never won on Turf in this country but has score off a higher mark on Polytrack. However, this should be one for the Gary Moore/Richard Hughes combination as STEELY deserves a change of luck after back-to-back seconds at Brighton and Kempton, though he's unproven on soft going. Arch Event is another who's been knocking on the door and she's unlikely to go down without a fight.
