Verdict

LARKHAM is preferred to the in-form Mykingdomforahorse and Senses. Larkham has been freshened up since having a fairly hard race at Salisbury where he found himself short of room at a crucial stage of the race. He's a tough sort who was progressing well prior to that and he's been found the right race in which to resume his upward curve. Senses has ability but hasn't always looked straightforwards and a visor did little to help him at Ascot. The headgear's been left off and he's been dropped back in trip but he has a good bit to prove. Mykingdomforahorse makes a quick reappearance under a penalty and merits respect as he did well to extricate himself from a pocket and chase down the winner at Yarmouth. Geneva Geyser is better than he was able to show at Goodwood and could enjoy the run of the race from the front whilst Natural Flair may have more to offer too. A few with claims but Larkham looks likeliest to run his race and gets the nod.
