Verdict

Embour finished ahead of Watchable when only fourth over the minimum trip last time but had earlier won over today’s distance at Windsor with Walk On Walter behind. Bossipop made all in a lower grade sprint at Ripon last week while Katheefa scored over track and trip back in May and could also go well. But ALKARAAMA made a winning start in handicaps earlier in this month when scoring over course and distance and Sir Michael Stoute’s colt is taken to confirm running with third-placed Intuitive and go in again.
