Verdict

Elusivity got off the mark at Kempton last month and Iron Step stepped up markedly and last year's efforts when landing his maiden at Leicester - he is surely open to further improvement. But there is none in this field with more scope than PROTRACTOR, Despite being slowly away and showing signs of inexperience on his debut at Lingfield, Barry Hills' Galileo colt was a relatively easy winner and may be capable of defying top weight on his first start on turf. Obsession was a decent fourth at Ascot last time while Ferruccio and Korngold should be capable of better this year.
