Verdict

Placed over 5f at Carlisle earlier, Dragon Command was raised in class and distance at Epsom last time and headgear is applied back at this lower level. But it was still a poor effort at Epsom and COASTAL MIST makes more appeal having made a winning start at Wetherby before suffering a narrow-margin defeat under a penalty at Ripon and John Quinn’s colt is fancied to make another bold bid. National League has a bit to find with the selection on latest running while Don Ramiro finished in front of Sir Havelock when only fourth at Redcar on his debut though looks likely to finish close today.
