Verdict

Noodles Blue Boy is only 1lb higher than when winning this last year but finished well behind LOVE ISLAND last week. The latter showed progressive form last season and took another step forward when scoring at Doncaster on her reappearance. She also beat Moorhouse Lad, Bedloe's Island, Excel Bolt and Pea Shooter on that occasion and it could pay to stick with Richard Whitaker's filly in this. Rusty Rocket is capable in this grade but Come On Dave looks high enough in the weights now and would prefer faster ground anyway. Angelito has scope for improvement this year and makes more appeal than The Nifty Fox.
