Verdict

Plenty with claims including Presumido, who was well ahead of previous winner Gracious George and Embankment when scoring over track and trip recently. Franco's Secret finished with a late flourish to dead-heat for first with Boss Time at Lingfield last time with What A Dandy less than a length behind. Ian's Memory returns from a lay-off in first-time headgear and may figure along with the veteran Extraterrestrial. But PARTY ROYAL has won off a 9lb higher mark in the past and Adam Kirby's presence takes the eye on his first start for a new yard. He gets a speculative vote in a wide-open contest.
