Verdict

This has been won by some very speedy performers and is always ultra-competitive. Majestic Myles was conceding Desert Law 2lb when just seeing him off in a similar event at Newmarket and both are very progressive sprinters who must be considered strong candidates here. Richard Fahey trains the former and was also delighted with the run of fourth-placed WHAT ABOUT YOU, who can take his revenge on the front pair and land this in the hands of the very capable claimer Declan Cannon. Henry Candy has a way with sprinters and Seal Rock, a dual winner over the trip at Newmarket, is progressing enough to make his presence felt though the main threat can arrive in the shape of Acclamazing, three times a winner at Wolverhampton before scoring easily at Newmarket and looking an unfortunate loser over an extra furlong at Ascot. Bottom weight Elusive Prince is another very progressive sprinter who should go well.
