Verdict

Difficult to make a strong case for any of these but something's got to win and SANTEFISIO gets the tentative vote. He was beaten only a nose in this race last year with today's rival Truism back in third and is taken to go one better off the same mark. Shifting Star and Huzzah continue to endure losing runs stretching back to 2008, while it's getting hard to know which Bowmaker will turn up after running his third poor race in his last six starts when tailed off at Ripon recently. Seek The Fair Land has claims on his best form as do Beaver Patrol and Valencha.
