Verdict

Mark Johnston has trained five of the last six winners and runs three this year. Of those, Oasis Prince and Dark Vision step up in trip but The Trader is preferred after placing over 1m2f at Epsom when finishing only a neck in front of Alkaamel. Migration is another upped in distance today while Good Birthday is now 13lb higher than when scoring at Doncaster in March having subsequently finished ahead of the disappointing Solid Stone at Newbury. Almashriq makes his handicap debut having gone close over a mile at Chelmsford but WALKINTHESAND was narrowly beaten in Listed company over today’s trip on the Rowley course here back in May. Ryan Moore is back on board for this and the Hannon colt gets another chance handicapping for the first time after a short break. Korcho and Cardano are both recent winners upped in class today.
