Verdict

The ground appears to have turned against recent course and distance winner Miss Tenacious while Politeo has developed a mind of his own. Hollow Penny must go close to following up his victory at Fontwell as the second franked the form on Thursday. He can beat Sublime Talent again but TEMPLE LORD can't get much lower in the weights and might be worth one more chance. He doesn't always find much off the bridle but has the right man on board if it comes down to a battle of wills.
