Race Verdict

The well-regarded AIR TRAFFIC has had his fair share of problems since filling the runner-up berth in last year's Wood Ditton but Sir Henry Cecil wouldn't be persevering with him if he didn't think he could make up for lost time. He can successfully concede weight to Commend, despite the Stoute three-year-old having a fitness edge from his promising Lingfield comeback. Sporting Gold cost 130,000gns and is the pick of the newcomers, although the William Haggas team can do little wrong at present, so his Dylan Thomas debutant Swnymor is worth more than a cursory glance.

Selection: Air Traffic        Danger: Commend        Alternative: Sporting Gold
