In depth


Redesignation won well last time and he gets the vote to score again; the list of dangers is headed by Aaim To Storm and Sheekey. Richard Hannon's colt beat Timetable at Newmarket last time and he showed a really good attitude that day. He is clearly improving, he has a good draw and Ryan Moore in the plate so there are plenty of plusses for him today. Aaim To Storm is eased in grade today but the simple fact is that he has had plenty of chances and he has been a bit disappointing so the percentage call is to take him on. Sheekey is a progressive colt and he will certainly be suited by this step-up in trip so he has to enter calculations. Graceful Desert has been knocking on the door of late and she should again run her race. However for the winner we will stick with Redesignation.
