Verdict

Lexington Bay's most recent win on the level came in an amateur's event and Wyborne will need a big step up on his maiden win over track and trip. Assizes has a bit to prove on last year's form and Northside Prince still looks high enough in the weights considering he hasn't won since 2010. The Tiger has the beating of Hanoverian Baron on collateral form as he returns to the Flat and Saoi is not easily overlooked despite another 4lb rise for finishing second at Lingfield last time. Course specialist FLYING POWER continued his steady progress with a third victory over track and trip last month and John Norton's charge may come out best again in a competitive handicap.
