Verdict

Hallstatt should be winning again soon off his current mark but it may not be today as he comes up against the progressive MONEY MONEY MONEY. The latter ran out a cosy winner over C&D earlier this month and a 7lb rise may not be enough to prevent a follow-up. Blackstone Vegas has solid claims and the beating of Miles Of Sunshine on the evidence of recent running over 2m here, while better is expected from last month's C&D winner Storm Hawk after he found the longer trip beyond him on his latest start.
