Verdict

Duchess Of Gazeley has won her last two starts over this trip on the Polytrack but whether she'll be able to reproduce that form on only her second start on Turf is debatable and she also carries a penalty. We much prefer GABRIAL THE DUKE, who didn't do a lot wrong against older horses at Chepstow last time and can win again off his current mark. Getaway Car probably has place claims again but the likes of Gamble, Hallingham and Vanvitelli are less exposed and wouldn't need to improve much to take a hand in proceedings.
