Verdict

Dark And Dangerous finished third in last year's renewal the last time he raced on the Flat and has been winning over hurdles since then. Musically finished second over today's trip at Warwick last month and won't be far away off a 2lb higher mark while Authentication also has claims under a penalty after an easy win at Catterick last Saturday. ZAAHYA has looked one paced over middle-distances so far but this longer trip could see her in a better light and she gets the tentative vote to open her account.
