Verdict

Oude is held in high regard by the stable and can land this listed event from Shannon Spring and Capable Guest. The selection just got the better of Shannon Springs when both were making their debuts at Newmarket back in July. Oude was reported to have needed the outing and is fully expected to improve for the run and take this before being aimed at an autumn Group contest. Shannon Springs is a nice looking individual and is also entitled to improve. There was only a neck between them last time and there should be nothing in it again today. Capable Guest has hinted at winning a decent contest this season and finally managed to get his nose in front when easily beating some promising maidens at Leicester last time. Now he has found out how to win he will be a big danger here. Of the others Elliot's World is from a top yard and could be anything, but Oude has a big reputation and is taken to oblige.
