Verdict

Most arrive out of form but ASTRAEA posted a better effort when dropped back to 6f at Catterick last month and finishing third. She may prove good enough racing off the same mark if taking to the Fibresand. Imperial Legend has won off a higher mark on Turf but has yet to score on the all-weather while Cool Strutter won at Brighton last month but his only success on artificial surfaces so far came back in 2016. Whispering Soul has just the one win in 30 outings while both Jazz Legend and 2015 winner Coiste Bodhar have plenty to find with the selection on running at Catterick.
