Verdict

Chuck Willis was doing his best work at the finish over 5f at Windsor so the extra furlong should help and he makes more appeal than Musselburgh fourth Hard Solution of those with experience but a few of the newcomers have the potential to be above average. Mark Johnston’s INDIAN SOUNDS is by Exceed and Excel and the first foal of a Listed winner in Germany so gets the nod ahead of the €55,000 yearling Caballero and Ramesses, who is bred to stay further.
