It all came together for SISTERANDBROTHER (best price 7/4) over a mile and a quarter here last time and up just 4lb for that I think he can confirm that form with Blue Hero back up to a mile and a half now. That was his first start for Milton Harris and he looked to need every yard of the trip to get on top under Pat Dobbs. They have booked 7lb claimer Connor Planas for the ride so that negates the rise and with Tyler Heard not being able to claim the selection is actually better off at the weights now. I have to admit I don’t know a great deal about the jockey but Milton Harris is often a good judge so I’m willing to take the risk. This smaller field should also mean there will be less traffic issues as the selection will likely be held up again before looking to swoop late. Of the rest Bobby Kennedy also has to be respected but he might just need the run on reappearance.

I fancy experience to tell here so COSMIC DESERT (best price 13/8) gets a confident vote to come out on top for Appleby and Buick. This son of New Approach was given a bold sight on debut before being run down by the promising New London. I know that horse got turned over at odds-on at Chester but the winner Changingtheguard looks exciting and is heading for the Derby. The second Aldous Huxley was beaten a neck by Lionel who looks a lovely prospect for the St Leger so that particular piece of form has serious substance. He then improved to finish second at Windsor and likely bumped into another decent horse in Deauville Legend. The pair came miles clear and with further improvement he can go one better now. The danger is the untapped potential of Beau Nash who won on debut as a 2yo but hasn’t been seen since so has a mammoth absence to overcome.
