Attorney is a speculative selection against Telepathic, Sharp Hat and Blue Power. None of these have been in the best of form lately, but Attorney has claims on a couple of wins at Lingfield and Folkestone in April, both over six furlongs. The last of those was gained off a lowly mark of 49 and he is now rated five-pounds higher despite failing to add to those victories in three subsequent outings. However, the feeling is that he is not at home on a switchback track and the return to this more conventional course will help his cause. Telepathic got outpaced at Redcar last time, and he was a winner over the course and distance under similar conditions in May. Sharp Hat is in the veteran stage now but is well treated on his best form, while Blue Power comes from a stable that has hit a winning streak in recent weeks. They are the main protagonists, and we look to Attorney as the answer.
