Verdict

COLLINSBAY remains a maiden after four starts for Richard Hannon, but he shaped well when fifth in a competitive sales race at Doncaster 10 days ago and should appreciate this step back up to 7f with Ryan Moore doing the steering. Qaasid found things happening too quickly on debut at Kempton last time but is fancied to be wiser for that experience, while similar comments apply to Decisive Edge, who showed good early pace on Polytrack just over a fortnight ago.

Verdict

It's hard to side against COLLINSBAY, who has run to a useful level in each of his 4 starts, and now takes a drop in class on his polytrack debut. Qaasid and Decisive Edge are sure to come on for their debut, but they will need a big step forward to trouble the favourite.
