Verdict

Wedding Wish is rated 85 and would normally be considered a good thing at this level. But she ran a shocker on her comeback and so did Humour, who gets first-time headgear today as a consequence. Ermine Ruby is yet another with something to prove after a poor effort at Newmarket while the exposed Percy's Gal has had plenty of chances. In the circumstances, FAJRY will not need to be anything special to score on his debut and the Godolphin colt rates a speculative selection in this.
