Verdict

BELGIAN BILL won a competitive handicap over C&D on his latest start. Both Burj Alzain and Silverheels finished behind and are worse off at the weights today so George Baker's colt is expected to follow up now back to his best. Global City is the highest rated but has been nowhere near his best for time while though Santefisio scored over a mile here recently but has plenty to find with the selection on today's terms. Swiss Cross is another with it all to in this company as he returns to 7f.
