In depth

Verdict

This nursery has attracted a big field and it look wide open but Everyday is improving while Young Winston left previous form behind over this trip at Ripon and holds Zimmerman on Newcastle running. Battyeford Boy was a beaten favourite last time at Musselburgh but still finished ahead of Sparka. The eye is drawn to Ralph Beckett’s SHABANO with Ryan Moore booked for the Epsom runner-up. Grifter needs some help from the handicapper but Cowboy and Greatness Awaits are definitely worth a second look along with Fiftyshadesaresdev.
