Verdict

A progressive three-year-old in 2008, Dundalk winner NICE STYLE has been hard to keep right since. He has only raced twice in the last two years but caught the eye on his latest return to action when finishing a decent third in a competitive handicap at Kempton last month. This step up in trip will suit and he is open to further progress. Trainer Jeremy Gask has a strong hand here as Denton also has a good chance. Captain John Nixon continues to improve and registered his fifth win this year when victorious over C&D last time but Cosimo De Medici finished second for the third time in succession last week and is becoming frustrating.
