Verdict

There are question marks hanging over most of these but Woolfall Treasure ran well when runner-up over 2m at Ascot last month. Mountain Hiker could easily reverse running with three-year-old Colour Vision at the same track in July as he 6lb better off here, though he can give trouble at the start. Highland Castle has been highly tried lately and has claims on his form earlier in the summer while Frankie prefers Sabotage to stablemate Kidnapped, though neither make much appeal on recent efforts. Ajaan and Mystery Star need further so we'll take a chance on the filly ROXY FLYER. She looked ill at ease around Chester's turns last time but her earlier form in Listed and Group 3 company stands up to scrutiny and she may be able to take advantage of today's drop in grade.
