Verdict

Speed Hawk needed 6f at Bath to get his head back in front while High On Life's winning run came to an end stepped up to this grade at Newmarket last time. Innocently makes more appeal with his rider's allowance cancelling out a 6lb rise for winning at Ripon. He should confirm latest running with Lexington Abbey, Pushkin Museum and Dutch Breeze. Irish raider Full Steam Ahead is still improving and Searchlight has bags of speed but the vote goes to the latter's stablemate ONLINE ALEXANDER. She scored in fine style at Goodwood earlier in the month and there looks more to come from her.
