Verdict

BLUELIGHT BAY was no match for Royal Scotsman when second at Goodwood but the latter went on to place in the Coventry at Ascot and is now rated 107. That looks strong enough form to win at this level with today’s main dangers probably residing among the newcomers. Of those, Celtic Champion is related to the high-class sprinter Dragon Symbol and is preferred to both Eminency and Borough while Al Hargah, a half-sister to a Listed winner, makes more appeal than stablemate Signcastle City.
