Verdict

DHAAMER makes plenty of appeal here. He won twice last year and finished a respectable third in much better company at Epsom on his return to action. There should be plenty more to come from John Gosden's charge and he's preferred to Pass Muster. The latter produced his best effort yet when scoring at Beverley last month and, despite an 8lb rise in the weights, he looks likely to make another bold bid today. Our Joe Mac is dropped in class and should figure if staying the longer trip, while better is expected from both Sowaylm and Diescentric with recent runs under their belts.
