Verdict

GARDEN OASIS wasn’t beaten far when only fourth at Wolverhampton on his reappearance. This longer trip will suit Sir Michael Stoute’s colt and he gets the nod now handicapping for the first time. Institution is another making his handicap debut and is preferred to Glorious Player while Ad Libitum showed signs of a return to form when second at Ripon. If We Can Can scored at Redcar before running poorly behind fifth-placed Broken Force at Hamilton while French Flyer has something to prove over today’s distance.
