Verdict

TWIRLING MAGNET hasn't managed to get his head in front in more than a year and ran in snatches when second at Kempton last time. But he still holds Best Boy Barney on that run and is capable of taking this if running up to something nearer his best. Penmore Mill won at Towcester and Leicester in March but looks held by the selection on a line through Ascot winner Polisky. Shoreacres had decent form last year but recent efforts suggest he's starting to feel his age and none of the others make much appeal.
