Verdict

Talyani is ridden by the improving Georgia Cox and is very unexposed and hard to analyse as he faces quick ground for the first time on just his third start. He could be very well treated but was slightly disappointing at Chelmsford and we'll let him run on this occasion and see how he handles conditions. Normandy Knight hunts a three-timer after revealing a good attitude to prevail at Beverley last time. Raised 10lb for two successes, he seems a gutsy type which is a useful attribute in contests of this type. DEERFIELD has only had four runs and hasn't been seen since finishing a staying-on second at Epsom back in April. Hopefully, all is well with him now and the Godolphin inmate is taken to outclass the opposition reverting to a more conventional track.
