Verdict

HESSLEWOOD (NAP) was beaten a neck by Hortzadar at Ripon and the winner followed up at Goodwood on Wednesday so James Bethell's charge can take this from just 1lb higher. Taawfan was unlucky in-running at Kempton but has never raced on ground with give nor has Lord Neidin though the latter looked progressive at Chelmsford. Sea Trout Reach came from a long way back on soft ground at Newmarket and was beaten less than a length so should go well while Aweedram, who wasn't beaten far on soft ground here in July, was engaged at Pontefract yesterday.
