Verdict

Jukebox Blues has shown nothing so far while the remaining trio have all been competing at Salisbury with both Mankayan and Tribal Craft penalised 7lb. The former scored over today’s trip in soft ground while Andrew Balding’s charge beat other fillies over 1m2f last month also in testing going. That should give the edge to ALIGNAK, who hasn’t raced since May but just failed to catch subsequent Derby seventh, Humanitarian, at Salisbury and Sir Michael Stoute’s colt gets the vote on that form with this longer trip likely to suit.
