Verdict

Sunday City looks high enough in the weights on his return to action while there hasn't been much encouragement in The Snail's recent efforts. Noble Crusader didn't stay the longer trip when pulled up at Newbury last month, however, and Silmi plainly needed the run when suffering the same fate at Aintree 12 days ago. Moulin De La Croix is often thereabouts and makes more appeal than Prince Des Marais, well beaten off his new mark at Stratford, but we prefer TYUP POMPEY. Ann Price's 10-year-old could run around here blindfold and will take some stopping if in the same mood as when scoring by six lengths over C&D earlier this month.
