Verdict

It's Been Noted represents last year’s winning yard but faded quickly away over 6f here last time albeit in better company than this. KING’S CAPER is preferred on a debut fourth over today’s trip at Sandown as he led for most of the way on that occasion and course specialist Franny Norton takes over the reins today. Sesame Birah also showed early pace over 6f at Nottingham but found one too good. She can figure but G For Gabrial will need to improve on his latest effort over a shorter trip here to get involved in the finish.
