Verdict

Surrey Hope had shown precious little this term before winning at odds of 5/2 last time so the market may prove the best guide to his chances of following up. Sir Busker has a more consistent profile but remains 12lb higher than when last successful, so preference is for LAWMAKING. Michael Scudamore's gelding was a convincing winner over this trip at Chelmsford last time and a 4lb rise may not be enough to stop him mounting another bold bid.

Verdict

PESTO shaped very well when runner-up in a similar event over C&D on AW debut last month and looks a big player off the same mark. Surrey Hope landed a gamble in good style on his third start for this yard at Epsom and is another to consider along with Edaraat, who wasn't disgraced in a class 2 at York last time and remains with potential.
