Verdict

Usain Boat won at Newmarket in May with both subsequent starts having been on soft ground. This represents a significant drop in class for George Scott’s gelding and he has leading claims, despite the penalty. Big Ace also carries 7lb extra and is starting to look exposed but Epaulini is a likely improver and Master Matt took a step forward when fifth at Windsor. Karl Burke’ stable is on a high at present and HARPERELLE can add to the feel-good factor after finding only one too good in both runs to date. The form of her latest run at Leicester received a boost when the winner won again last week
