      Verdict

      GANTIER will likely prove a warm order here. Blinkers are fitted for the first time after suffering a narrow-margin defeat over today’s trip at Lingfield and John Gosden’s Frankel colt can open his account in this modest company. Fayetta has placed on a couple of occasions and attempts a longer trip today while the four-year-old Redemptorist competed over longer distances in Ireland last year and debut for new connections. Velvet Vista and Freedom's Breath have yet to figure and look up against it.
