Verdict

WENT THE DAY WELL got into top gear all too late in slow ground at Haydock on his debut, but still nearly caught the winner and he'll know more here. He's a tentative selection ahead of Epsom third Zaeem and Mysterious Man, who was unfancied for his debut at Newbury but finished a close-up fourth. Thomas Chippendale and Rogue Reporter have some catching up to do to get involved, but the newcomers Villa Royale and Hallmark Star are related to Listed race winners and are worth keeping an eye on.
