Verdict

Baronial Pride has no easy task on these terms while there is little between Junius Brutus and Tin Hat on their running over 5f at Ascot in the Windsor Castle back in June. Yousini is unbeaten in a couple of starts over the minimum trip and the front-runner will go close if staying the extra distance but KUWAIT STATION looks a safer bet. David O’Meara’s colt has won either side of a defeat in the Coventry Stakes and romped home by seven lengths over today’s trip at Catterick last time.
