Verdict

Prolific on the Polytrack, Ishikawa took advantage of a lower mark on this surface to make all at Ascot last week. But similar tactics here could play into the hands of NO DOMINION. The latter wasn't beaten far behind the progressive Manchestar at Redcar on his comeback and looks up to scoring off his current mark on that evidence. Knight Owl included a win over track and trip when ending last year with a double and will have come on for last month's reappearance but the Polytrack winners Cape Samba and Self Employed are upped in class for this. So is the veteran Docofthebay, who showed signs of a resurgence at Haydock last time, and is preferred to Save The Bees.
