Verdict

Jedd O'Keefe's Fifty Moore deserves to win a contest having run some decent races in defeat and he has claims back in a maiden having been well held in a handicap at Haydock last time but may have to again settle for minor honours behind AFRICAN WAVE, who is hard to oppose. John Gosden's colt ran promisingly on his debut back in March at Doncaster when second of 17 behind Bullwhip on a softish surface and he can go one better here. Mark Johnston's Opera Cat was well held first time up and is hard to recommend, while Declan Carroll's Swiftly Done looks booked for a place at best. Brian Ellison's Jingoism has shown only limited signs of ability in bumpers and it is hard to get away from African Wave.
