    Verdict

    Musical Bridge is just 2lb higher in the ratings than when he beat Sandwith at Hamilton in June. The latter ran reasonably to finish second here last time out and has frame claims whilst Sloop Johnb has slipped down the weights to a realistic mark but is bang out of form. Cayman Fox is still 11lb higher than her last winning mark and continues to look in the grasp of the handicapper. Schoolboy Champ will appreciate the drop back to the minimum trip after weakening with a furlong to go over six furlongs last time out at Ayr. AVERTUOSO has the assistance of a visor that has garnered plenty of improvement in his last three starts and after a poor start at Nottingham most recently he did better than the bare form fifth position suggests. Atlantic Beach prefers faster ground than this but Grissom could be a danger after a creditable second at Pontefract last time.
