Verdict

A runner-up on his last couple of outings, George Baker hasn't won since 2012 and has done all his previous winning over 7f or further. Admirable Art's recent second also came over 7f and NIGHT TRADE is taken to defy a penalty. She scored over the minimum trip in soft going at Chepstow last week and won off a higher mark over today's distance at Goodwood last year. Catalinas Diamond finally won on Turf at Windsor last month after 25 attempts, though Encapsulated wasn't far behind, while Dark Lane could pop-up at any time off his current mark.
