Verdict

Azelle was a disappointment at Warwick last time and while an official rating of 64 looks to be a little enthusiastic on the assessor's part, Richard Hannon's filly is nevertheless a big player in a very modest race. Day In Day Out is dropped into selling grade and tried in headgear having failed to build upon some promise as a juvenile so we'll look to oppose with BRICK RISING. Andrew Balding's gelding won at Windsor in April but ran no sort of race at Salisbury next time and connections have swiftly dropped him into plating company as a consequence. Sutton Sid obliged in two sellers on the Polytrack for George Baker and is making a second start for Chris Gordon. Hilden was sent off at 25/1 for a similar event at Lingfield last week, and ran far better than those odds suggested.
