Verdict

Profile Star went close over track and trip last month when finishing ahead of Desert Strike. The latter went on to score at Wolverhampton and is raised 5lb today. Roy's Legacy remains in fine form having recorded a double over course and distance earlier this year while the likes of Shirley's Pride, Silvanus and Alpha Delta Whisky can all be given a chance on last season's best form on Turf. ASK THE GURU finished well behind Roy's Legacy on his reappearance but went close to catching Gregori here last time. He looks set for a return to winning ways in this lower grade sprint and gets the nod.
