A strong turnout for what is a very moderate prize. Lord Ofthe Shadows is the form pick on his second to subsequent Weatherbys Super Sprint winner Charles The Great at Windsor and he certainly wasn't disgraced in a tough nursery at Goodwod last time. Evervescent was only just beaten in a Listed contest at Epsom before two poor efforts, one behind Power in the Coventry Stakes when Rebellious Guest was in front of him. Gung Ho Jack will need to improve to have any chance against the unbeaten pair Gold City and CHOOSEDAY. The former didn't have much to beat at Leicester though did it nicely enough but Kevin Ryan's colt went to Haydock strongly fancied and though running green won well enough to give him the vote here.
