Verdict

This is a competitive contest and narrow preference is for MATSUNOSUKE who just gets the nod ahead of Judd Street and Mood Music. The selection has won his last three starts at this venue, including a Listed contest a couple of starts back, and he looks to have a leading chance of completing a Lingfield four-timer. He is arguably better over 5f, but he is still a force over today's trip and he can just edge out his rivals. Judd Street is a course and distance winner but he did disappoint on his last start at Nad Al Sheba last month. He his worth considering today, along with Mood Music who won in decent style in Germany earlier this month. Arganil has won his last three starts and he scored in good style at Southwell last week when he beat Obe Gold. He is progressive, although it could be argued that he is better over the minimum trip. There are plenty in with chances here and the narrow preference is for Matsunosuke.
