Verdict

Jockey bookings would suggest Never Easy is the pick of Richard Fahey's pair in this, even though the grey only beat one home on debut at Pontefract. John Quinn is another trainer doubly represented but Phantasmo and Redcar fourth Racing Knight both need to improve. Koptoon should go close as he was beaten less than two lengths when fourth at Goodwood but LOOKING GOOD showed she handled soft going at Newmarket last time and David Brown's filly can make it third-time lucky from a good draw. Caius College Girl looks the pick of the remainder.
