Verdict

Grilletto posted a much improved effort when third over 7f here last time without looking like winning and it would be no surprise to see Man From Seville finish a lot closer after a recent debut sixth at Lingfield. Arctic Admiral is another likely improver but Mahmood Al Zarooni seems determined to land this and runs three. Shooting Jacket has shown nothing so far but Raven's Tower is related to top-class winners in America on his dam's side. CAP O'RUSHES makes more appeal as he's out of a prolific dam and can count a Polytrack scorer among eight winning relatives. He gets the nod to score at the first time of asking.
