Verdict

See The Sun won a valuable contest here in June but is one of several that like to force the pace in today's line-up. Caspian Prince, Free Zone and Peterkin are others who like to lead while Move In Time was always prominent when just touched off by Goldream at Ascot on Shergar Cup day when Racy was behind. That could set things up for a finisher with Kimberella fancied having got going too late in the Great St Wilfrid at Ripon on Saturday. Blaine won a decent contest at Hamilton last month but then finished behind Ashpan Sam and York Glory in the Stewards' Cup at Goodwood. SECRET WITNESS has won over 6f here and was third over 5f off today's mark in May so this intermediate distance should be ideal. He thrives on racing so it's not a worry that he finished unplaced at Doncaster at the weekend and he could go close at a big price in a very tricky opener.
