Verdict

Third in the Solario Stakes to Kingman last year, Music Theory was tailed off on his belated reappearance and has something to prove now. Both Zanetto and Rene Mathis were well beaten in the same race at Ascot the last time they attempted 7f, so the vote goes to EXCELLENT GUEST. He showed signs of a revival when third over track and trip last Saturday and won off a higher mark last term. Almargo should be thereabouts and Englishman has been threatening to score in lesser company of late.
