Verdict

Crew Cut's winning run came to an end at Kempton last time and the handicapper may have his measure now. Seeking Magic has also looked high enough in the weights of late and will need to dig a bit deeper to end his long losing run. KLYNCH landed a hat-trick last summer and, now back on a winning mark, it could be his turn again today. Both Lunar Deity and Clear Spring have claims as they return to action but today's trip may prove a problem for Capitol Gain as he scored three times over a mile last season. Piazza San Pietro has slipped down the weights and could prove best of the remainder though Dutch Heritage was well backed on his reappearance.
