Verdict

CAPE CLASSIC is taken to defy his considerable burden in the belief that he could well be better than this level. He obviously has plenty to do at the weights but enjoys a good strike rate and has likely been saved for better ground by William Haggas after impressing with the style of his Windsor success when last seen in May. Street Power rediscovered form last time and will be a danger to all if in the same mood here, whilst the three-year-old, Sir Pedro, needs to be taken seriously plunged into handicap company by the Charles Hills team on only his third start. There are many with decent place claims, of which Trade Secret and Avonmore Star make most appeal.
