Verdict

A typically trappy sprint handicap on the Knavesmire in which any number have realistic claims on their best form. Horseradish finished fifth in the Victoria Cup at Ascot last Saturday and will appreciate the return to 6f, while Docofthebay showed himself to be well suited by this trip when third at Newmarket 12 days ago. Kaldoun Kingdom has run well here in the past but stablemate Irish Heartbeat may still be too high in the weights and could be better over a little further nowadays. The booking of Kieren Fallon for Hoof It is very interesting and a market move for Mick Easterby's gelding would be hugely significant but the vote goes to MIDNIGHT MARTINI, who will be all the better for her run over an inadequate 5f at Beverley and is probably on a decent mark at present.
