Verdict

TOP JOKER can shrug off a year's absence to land an ordinary-looking maiden. Several winners came out of the race in which he finished second to Chesterfield on this card 12 months ago. Shaishee was sent off favourite on the Polytrack in April but was beaten half-a-length and may have to settle for a place again here while Kazak may do better when tackling handicaps. Top Set didn't show much at Yarmouth last month and the market will probably be the best guide to the chances of debutants Akeed Dubawi and St Elmo's Fire.
