Verdict

John Quinn won this last year with Moonlightnavigator, rated 83, and this year's representative SPEED COMPANY (NAP) has been given the same mark after winning at Musselburgh last month in good style. He beat a Kevin Ryan-trained horse on that occasion and the latter runs the newcomer Briyouni, a half-brother to a couple of winners and preferred to Euchen Glen. Zaina Rizeena beat a subsequent winner to land a maiden at Beverley and Pythius scored over track and trip before struggling in Group 3 company. Pickett's Charge looks up against it on his form to date.
