Verdict

A host of these are running consistently well with the likes of Rousayan, Raselasad and Lamloon more than capable of proving good enough. Gentle Look disappointed on the all-weather last time but previous efforts bring the Godolphin gelding into contention, although some improvement is almost certainly required. Donncha went close the last day and would have every chance if returning to his best but the choice is HORTZADAR (NAP). David O'Meara's gelding looked one to follow when impressively landing his first two starts of the campaign but has failed to follow up those successes albeit in better company. However, this may prove his ideal trip and he'll go close if finding the turn of foot displayed on those winning occasions.
