In depth


Investment Wings gets the vote here with Tarabut and Taxman rating the main dangers. The selection has dropped to a handy mark and ran as if returning to form when fourth behind Balance Of Power last time out the step up in trip is sure to suit and under his optimum conditions he looks the one to beat. Tarabut rates the main danger on his latest third behind Mersey Sound but he is more exposed than most and at likely odds he looks worth taking on. Taxman is another that could go well he was also a fair third last time out behind Domenico. That form has since been let down and he is passed over for that reason. . Of the remainder Whispering Death is from a yard that is beginning to find his form and could run well at a price but in a trappy affair for the winner we return to Investment Wings.
