In depth

Verdict

These are a rather sorry-looking bunch but Solfeggio has shown some ability on a variety of surfaces and is unlikely to be far away. SUBLIMINAL has placed in three of his last four runs around here and was a winner over course and distance last March off a pound higher mark. Almost by default, he gets the nod with Luke Morris keeping the partnership intact. Padura Brave attracted market support at Kempton earlier this month but was unplaced again and that was over 1m4f. Highway One looks best of the rest.
