      Verdict

      Of those to have run the best form has been shown by Aegean Line, who made subsequent listed winner Airwave pull out all the stops at Leicester. That was over the minimum and she has yet to convince over this longer trip. Say What You See, who failed to handle the undulations at Epsom should do better on this stiffer track, but his future looks to lie in handicaps, while Time Spin can be expected to improve for his debut when just behind Beneking over course and distance. However, this may go to the newcomer Nuzzle, who is a half-sister to several winners abroad.
