In depth

Verdict

VENEZIA had some smart form in the UK despite being beaten at short odds four times, including when odds-on at Newbury in July. He's now with Mick Halford and, though unlikely ever to repay the 235,000 euros he cost as a yearling, can start making up for lost time. Ger Lyons puts blinkers on Unrequited, who was robbed of a victory at Wexford when his rider failed to weigh in. He's run reasonably well over further subsequently and looks the main danger. Carrie Bow Cay steps up in trip after a fair run behind Quartz over a mile and she has the scope to do better while Kadayma tackles the surface for the first time after showing a bit of potential on soft ground.
