Verdict

2004 was the last time a favourite obliged but KINGSGATE CHOICE rates the selection whether he starts the jolly or not. He finished with a late rattle to score at York three weeks ago and can follow-up here confirming superiority with Bosun Breese, Magical Macey, Barnet Fair and Ubetterbegood in the process. The latter was engaged to run at York yesterday while the selection also had an admittedly below par Hamish McGonagall behind when runner-up to the higher rated Tangerine Trees over track and trip in March. Rothesay Chancer beat Flash City over course and distance a fortnight ago but the latter pair, along with recent Brighton winner Racy, found Bajan Tryst too good in last year's renewal. Kevin Ryan's charge looks a threat competing off a lower mark today while Jamaican Bolt will welcome any rain and Long Awaited has a shout with a recent run at Epsom under his belt.
