Verdict

Dubai Dynamo came with a late burst to catch Xilerator over 7f at Thirsk and can confirm the form over this extra furlong. Some rain would help the cause of TWO FOR TWO but he gets the vote anyway. He won a couple of minor races in France before joining David O'Meara and very nearly made a winning start on ground that was probably just too quick. Lord Aeryn and Ginger Jack have solid form though both return from long breaks while Amaze needs further on this kind of ground. Snow Trooper arrives in cracking form, though a 5lb hike for his Windsor victory takes him to an all-time high.
