Verdict

Captain Dunne has staged something of a revival this summer but doesn't look ideally drawn in the centre of the track this evening. Silvanus had Mutafaakir back in third when scoring at Catterick last month but there shouldn't be much between the pair on today's revised terms. Both should, however, beat Megaleka again. Inxile, Normal Equilibrium and LONG AWAITED are regular rivals but it's about time the latter was taking advantage of a tumbling mark and he may just be a bit fresher than some of these having been rested since May. Adam's Ale may be best of the rest as Jamaican Bolt is best when the mud is flying.
