Verdict

This is a suitable opportunity for ADMIRAL DOOLEY who is expected to confirm placings after he got the better of Tyrus Express and Ballon D'or last month and bids to get back to winning ways. However, this looks trappy; Suited Connector is in with a shout, but does need to be forgiven a poor run last time, and Kotinos has winning form over course and distance.
