Verdict

JOHAN ZOFFANI has improved between runs over this trip so far and a reproduction of the form which saw him finish second at the Curragh last time may well suffice. Hong Kong is dropping back in trip and sports first-time blinkers after picking up minor money over 7f at Limerick, so he is the one expected to put up most resistance. The pick of the remainder may be Shooting Spirit, who is entitled to step up on his debut fifth here last month.

Verdict

It may be a case of third time lucky for JOHAN ZOFFANI, who only gave way close home under very testing conditions at the Curragh 3 weeks ago. Hong Kong is likely to benefit from the combination of this drop in trip and the fitting of blinkers, but his pedigree suggests that quicker ground would be ideal and bigger threats may be posed by promising duo Nullifier and Shooting Spirit.
