In depth

Verdict

Eton is given the confident vote here with Peter's Imp, Platinum Charmer and Sandy Bay the others worth considering. The selection has been running consistently well and confirmed his well-being with a decent effort when fifth behind Rondelet at Epsom last time. He will have no trip or ground worries and in what looks a fairly moderate event he is taken to score. Peter's Imp rates the main danger as he is a versatile sort who has won over a variety of trips and he goes especially well at this track. He ran well last time and is dropped in distance here and should not be too far away at the finish. Platinum Charmer did not get the race run to suit at Carlisle last time when well beaten behind Tomasino, but he is proven in this grade and it would be no surprise to see him run a big race. Sandy Bay was well beaten on his last effort over this trip but he does have ability and also has the services of the in-form Seb Sanders so he could go well at a big price, but for the winner we return to the game and consistent Eton.
