Verdict

A fairly competitive finale, though you'd imagine All The Winds might just need the run and the versatile Ultimate also returns from a break. Royal Alcor may be in the handicapper's grip now and this may be too tough for Colinca's Lad but Wyborne wasn't beaten far at Ayr last time while Azrag is better than he showed when favourite for a novelty race at Epsom. Fennell Bay is very interesting as he's won three times off higher marks on Turf this year but this represents a big drop in grade for LYRIC STREET and, potentially well-treated, the top weight can win his first start on Polytrack eased in distance.
