Verdict

The shortlist is headed by the Gary Moore-trained runners EXECUTIVE POOL and Tara Iti in that order of preference. The selection is open to progress in reapplied blinkers and remains of interest, while the second choice has a largely sound record over C&D and won this race 12 months ago. Tommy Dillion has to be feared on the back of his Lingfield success, while Celtic Fortune looks the pick of the handicap debutants.[Steve Boow]
