Verdict

For Good Measure has shown decent form the last twice and will be popular with the champion jockey aboard for Philip Hobbs. He holds Three Ways on their running earlier this term, whilst Beneagles almost certainly needed the run after a major absence when unplaced at Ffos Las. A son of Frankel, SOLO SAXOPHONE (NAP) was hammered by the handicapper for two wins in four days in April but still performed with credit on subsequent starts. Massively impressive when winning at Wetherby under similar conditions on the first of those two victories, his turn of foot can prove decisive with waiting tactics highly likely to be employed.
