Verdict

Highlife Dancer goes well here and is almost guaranteed to run his race again. Zephyros has been getting closer and Desert Cross was a rare three-year-old winner here for Jonjo O'Neill last month and has only been raised 2lb. THE BAY BANDIT was knocking on the door on the all-weather in May but handles Turf having won over hurdles and fences and been successful four times on Jersey. Edward Greatrex' claim should help the nine-year-old be competitive this evening. Ferryview Place isn't badly treated but is better on artificial surfaces.
