Verdict

Geminus has won at Cartmel and Southwell this summer but needs to improve again if he's to complete his hat-trick. Preference is for ILLYSANTACHRISTINA, who won off a higher mark last year and is oblivious to the state of the ground. She will appreciate the slight step up in trip. Dipity Doo Dah is consistent but still a maiden and Galiotto is probably more interesting as he's gone close a couple of times on the Flat recently and has won here in the past. Sail And Return and Rock Me may need this, however, and Another Trump is woefully out of form.
