Verdict

This doesn't look as interesting as the first division but there are more form lines to work with. Snow Sky made a promising start at Newmarket but failed to live up to expectations when odds-on at Haydock on his second start. He has a bit to prove now while Solo Hunter is thoroughly exposed. Hands Up was slowly away on debut at Newmarket and then met trouble in-running. But he kept on strongly in the closing stages and will know more today. MISHKO was forced to race wide throughout when fifth at Goodwood but stuck well to his task and looks to be improving. He could be a bit of value in this and is preferred to the once-raced High Master and Godolphin's Intense Effort with the fillies Cosette and Sea Goddess also worth a second look.
