Verdict

Not one favourite has won this in the past 10 years. Richard Fahey was successful a year ago but Shot In The Sun will need to do better than at York where she was a disappointing favourite. Jallota has only won one race but has been competing at a very high level including in Dubai over the winter. He'll be a threat to all if ready after a break but was behind Championship when both made their debuts last May and the winner is 7lb better off. ROYAL SEAL looked a smart prospect when scoring on fast ground at Sandown earlier this month and his most recent run at Newmarket is best ignored as Ryan Moore took him to the far side on the soft going. He'll be a different proposition in the likely conditions and can return to winning ways. It was also soft going when Nakuti won at Newmarket so she could do with some rain while Passing Star has done his winning on Polytrack.
