Verdict

Bint Soghaan showed ability on her debut when going close at Kempton but that was back in October and she’ll need to take a step forward on her return given RED ARMADA (NAP) is rated 85. The latter was beaten only a head at Newbury on last month’s return to action by Biometric, who went on to win the Britannia at Ascot last week, and Clive Cox’ colt gets the vote on that form. Recondite faced a tough task at Newmarket last time and may finish closer today while Helian improved to place at Nottingham recently and Soft Cover represents last year’s winning yard.
