Verdict

The three-year-olds Hermocrates and Queen's Soldier both have strong claims in this. The former could not have got much closer in first-time headgear at Bath last week and the latter has placed in his last three, though still seeks a first victory. Peace Prevails is another to consider and Foresee won here last year off a pound higher and was returning from a break and wind surgery when third at Southwell in May. HATSAWAY (NAP) is back in the right grade and on a winning mark. He has a preference for left-handed, turning tracks and a big run is expected this evening.
