Verdict

Plenty look to have decent claims in this but Alfred Hutchinson was disappointing at York last time over a longer trip and Oratory appears to have lost his way. Eraada has plenty of scope and makes more appeal than fellow three-year-old Byronic Hero but Sandown third Yojimbo also enters the equation and Fastnet Storm won at Carlisle in June, though was well behind SHADOWTIME at Beverley subsequently. Merchant Of Medici was also well beaten that day so Tracy Waggott's charge could be the one here as he clearly found the ground too soft at Thirsk on Tuesday. Desert Romance was beaten in a Musselburgh claimer on Monday.
