Verdict

The card's feature event is notable this year for the appearance of Hungarian sprinter Overdose. He's won 15 of his 16 starts including Group races in Germany but is facing his greatest test yet up against today's high-class rivals. Those include Markab, who carries a penalty for winning the Group 1 Sprint Cup over 6f here last year and is being primed for the Golden Jubilee at Ascot next month, and last season's Nunthorpe winner Sole Power, who found the progressive Tangerine Trees too good at Newmarket three weeks ago. The latter also beat Prohibit, Borderlescott and Group Therapy on that occasion and is sure to go close today, but Sir Michael Stoute had KINGSGATE NATIVE primed to win this on his reappearance last year and a repeat looks in the offing here.
