    Verdict

    Al Garhoud Bridge showed that he had got the hang of things at Catterick last time and he can follow up here, with Emerald Penang and Justaquestion the main dangers. Al Garhoud Bridge took a couple of races to get fully wound up, but after encountering traffic problems at Catterick, he picked up nicely for a staying on win from Jane Jubilee, who has franked the form with two wins since. Trip and ground suit and he can go in again. Emerald Penang can give him most to do. Peter Chapple-Hyam's gelding stayed on well to beat Flying Pass at Epsom when stepped up to this trip last time and with plenty of scope for improvement, he should again go very well, while Justaquestion is holding his form well, but although he didn't run badly in defeat at Warwick over this trip last time, he looked as though a stiff six furlongs would be more to his liking. our choice here then is Al Garhoud Bridge.
