Verdict

CHOSEN CHARACTER was scoring for the fourth time over course and distance last month when beating a subsequent winner. He's only been raised 3lb for that and still looks fairly treated so another big run is anticipated. Just Be Lucky is still a maiden but has run well in all three starts for new connections and should be winning soon. Sarmadee has also shown enough to suggest he can win a race like this while Equleus did well on Polytrack over the winter, though the lack of headgear here is a concern. Mujazif is preferred to Know Your Name and Lopes Dancer of the others.
