Verdict

Aegaeus was given a clever tactical ride from the front by Ryan Moore at Kempton, who caught his rivals napping when he quickened off the home turn. It will be tougher to make all here and the one to beat is probably ROSACEOUS if she reproduces her latest second at Ffos Las. She was gaining on the well-backed winner throughout the final furlong so the stiff finish here should suit. Breakheart looks to be in the handicapper's grip while this looks too sharp nowadays for Dr Livingstone and Zenarinda makes her seasonal reappearance. The others have plenty to prove on recent form.
