Verdict

Nottingham winner Cotton Club ran well again when going close at Goodwood but has been raised a further 5lb. INSAANY makes more appeal off his current mark as he also won at Nottingham on his handicap debut and there looks plenty more to come from him. Luck Of The Game finished well clear of a 74-rated rival when second in a classified event at Newmarket and is well handicapped if that form is taken literally while the Frankie Dettori-partnered Damascene, Classical Art and All Reddy are others to note.
