Verdict

Oriental Scot arrives in good form having won at Haydock before a fine effort behind Musnad at Musselburgh when Staff Sergeant was behind. He's climbed the ratings as a consequence but should still go well as should Classic Colori, whose best run last year came over this trip when just touched off in the Silver Cambridgeshire at Newmarket. Area Fifty One generally races over further but he ended last season in excellent form and will be better for his reappearance here a month ago so looks a big threat under the champion jockey. He holds an advantage over Dubai Dynamo at these weights but HALFSIN is a different matter as he completed a hat-trick last summer before being beaten a length by Barbican at Newmarket. That winner went on to further glory and earned a rating of 111 so Marco Botti's charge is handed the vote as he looks very well handicapped on that form.
