Verdict

Tropics won last year’s inaugural running with Udontdodou behind but the former is 3lb higher today. Cowboy Soldier won at Kempton before finishing in front of Royal Birth, Saaheq and Poyle Vinnie at York while Venturous arrives in fine form but is upped in class off a 6lb higher mark after scoring at Redcar. Encore d'Or has gone off the boil and A MOMENTOFMADNESS has not been at his best of late. But the latter returns to the all-weather for the first time since winning at Kempton over a year ago and given he’s won four of only six starts on artificial surfaces, Charlie Hills’ sprinter gets a speculative vote to return to form.
