Verdict

Previous Haydock winner EUXTON HALL finished fourth in the Listed Woodcote Stakes at Epsom last time and that looks the best piece of form on offer. Richard Fahey's colt should have enough to hold off the attentions of Royal Rascal, who stepped up on her debut effort to score in soft ground at York on her latest start and should be thereabouts again. Mazeppa needed 7f at Musselburgh last time to get off the mark and Top Notch Tonto's earlier success came over the minimum trip. Dark Opal looks up against it in this company on what she's shown so far.
