Verdict

Geological has won four times around here but has had 42 races on the track. He was only beaten a nose over 6f a fortnight ago and his young rider is still able to claim 10lb so another big run is anticipated. Bay Of Skaill was beaten a short-head by the smart Surrounding over the track and trip two weeks ago and would be an obvious threat on that form though the one to take from the race is FOCUS OF ATTENTION. Joseph O'Brien's charge was having his first start on the surface and was held up to get the trip but finished fast and late and can continue his stable's fine run. The yard also run Proud And Elated, who is still a maiden but has dropped to her lowest ever mark. Gavin Cromwell is going well and Gunmaker, who couldn't quite get to Time Stands Still a couple of weeks ago, could see that form boosted in the previous race. The lightly-raced Royal Navy Warship won over 6f here in August and has been staying on in his subsequent starts over the minimum.
