Verdict

Vasari is a half-brother to three winners with Ryan Moore doing the steering. He may prove good enough on his debut though recent Ascot runner-up Return To Senders, rated 77, sets a decent standard to aim at. But HECTOR LOZA may well improve past the latter having made a promising start over today’s trip at Kempton when beaten less than a length in third. Simon Dow’s colt gets the vote ahead of Centurion Song, placed at Newbury recently and also capable of getting involved in the finish. Positive Light is another newcomer to note and is preferred to stablemate Najm.
