Verdict

Minnaloushe came up short in similar company at Kempton on a couple of occasions last month. That's not to say she can't win this but Speed Hawk is less exposed and was placed at the same track on his debut. He also has leading claims but the remainder with racecourse experience will do well to get involved. James Tate's runners have been in fine form here all year and DREESE, a half-brother to a winner, may well be good enough to make a winning start. He's preferred to fellow newcomer Alba Verde, bred to excel over longer distances, but Techtycoon is related to multiple Polytrack winner Glenridding and worth noting.
