Verdict

Nicholas T has been in fine form over a mile but has had several attempts over this far without success. GLASSES UP was having only his second start of the year when behind the latter here last time but won last year’s renewal of this and is taken to reverse running and come out best again. Asian Angel scored over course and distance last month when Shrewd and Royal Regent were both well beaten but is now 11lb higher having placed subsequently while Windsor Cross is back on a winning mark if rediscovering his best.
