Verdict

This is tougher than the seller Loose Chippings’ finished second in at Thirsk but Tally's Son has a shout on a recent placed effort at Windsor. Swissal won over 7f at Brighton earlier but has yet to compete over this far and a chance is taken on the unexposed DARGEL. He’s not raced since April but has undergone wind surgery during the interim and with progress expected now handicapping for the first time, he gets the vote with Oisin Murphy doing the steering. Amor Fati’s only win on Turf came in Guernsey and Bond Angel is best at Southwell where she’s done all her winning so far.
