Verdict

Glenn Coco landed a hat-trick on the all-weather before taking advantage of a lower mark on Turf to win at Newmarket. He remains on a winning mark and is preferred to Deep Intrigue, who returns to 7f representing last year’s winning yard. Monsieur Noir goes handicapping for the first time and can figure though Blackheath still looks high enough in the weights. ADMIRALTY (NAP) won a higher grade contest at Thirsk in May and went close in Class 2 company at York last time. An apprentice takes 5lb off his back today and that could be enough to give Roger Fell’s charge the edge in this.
