Verdict

Corncrake is upped in class under a penalty as he bids for a hat-trick having won a classified race at Nottingham last time. A winner at Goodwood recently, Sophosc has recorded all four wins so far over a mile while Al Mureib hasn’t progressed as expected and was beaten in a maiden at Leicester last time. Aspire Tower’s only win to date came in soft ground but FELIX recorded a novice success on a fast surface at Yarmouth last year. Sir Michael Stoute’s charge floundered in the heavy going at Haydock last month but gets another chance today on only his second outing since April.
