Verdict

GUILDENSTERN is given the tentative vote to land what looks like a tough finale with both Connor's Choice and Rosie Says No worth noting. The selection landed back-to-ack victories during the winter on the all-weather and continued to rise in the weights. He then entered a quiet period whereby his rating has plummeted. He caught the eye after finishing a close fourth of 12 at Wolverhampton last time out and with a further two pounds drop in the ratings he is now weighted to go very close. Connor's Choice is only two pounds higher since winning at Lingfield last month and lost nothing in defeat at Chepstow last time out and another solid performance is expected. Rosie Says No was right back to her best after finishing a close second to Cativo Cavallino over course and distance last time out and is another to add to the shortlist. This is a tough race to call, however Guildenstern looks potentially well treated on his best form and gets the narrow vote.
