Verdict

Another wide open contest with many in with chances on their best form but the principals look to be Royal Windmill, Bee Health Boy and Answered Promise and we will take a chance on Royal Windmill. The four year old was a fair third in a none seller last time out and with the drop in grade sure to suit he will be hard to beat. Bee Health Boy rates the main danger now he reverts to his best trip having appeared not to stay ten furlongs last time out. Answered Promise could also go well he won well last time out when defeating Air Of Esteem but he may struggle off this mark. Of the remainder Muqtadi has two ways of running but if he ordained to but his best foot forward he would be a danger to all but we are happy to side with the more reliable Royal Windmill.
