Verdict

It can almost be taken for granted that Justice Smart, a half-brother to a winning miler in Ireland, will improve on his debut fourth at Nottingham in May. But there was much to like about the run of MUBAJAL (NAP) when third at Newmarket last month and Owen Burrows' son of Dubawi looks the one to beat. Cape Banjo and Corked are starting to look exposed while Hilltop Ranger was a little disappointing at Lingfield following her fourth at Goodwood. Love In The Dark hinted at ability last year but may do better in handicaps.
