Verdict

2000 Guineas entry Ribaat was also in the Greenham here at the weekend so his presence in today's handicap suggests he may not have progressed as expected. Hay Dude, Mutazamen and So Beloved have all been beaten since opening their accounts but Baltic Knight ended last season with a victory at Salisbury and makes some appeal. Last year's Newmarket winner HASOPOP found stablemate Teophilip too good in a Listed race at Lingfield on his return but race fitness could give him an edge in this and Marco Botti's charge can come out best.
