At The Races Verdict

LOXLEY has been off the track since finishing fifth in the Group 1 Jebel Hatta at Meydan in March but his stable can ready their string after a break and he's afforded the utmost respect now lowering his sights. Big Country is having his second start after wind surgery and Elwazir is sporting a first-time hood. Both runners have viable place claims, as do Willie John, Walkinthesand and Fox Tal in what appears a tight contest at the weights.

Timeform Verdict

LOXLEY has a 6-month absence to overcome, but he sets the standard and this essentially looks a decent opportunity for him back down in grade. Willie John's career has been one of stops and starts so far, but he's worth another chance on his career-best second at Goodwood in May.
