Channon 'very hopeful' for Finest Reserve.
Michael Jarvis, trainer of Musaafer "We had him gelded after the Guineas meeting and have given him plenty of time. He's working nicely and he appears fit enough to do himself justice. It's a tricky handicap, but he should run a race." Paul Cole, trainer of No Hubris "He's been disappointing in his last couple of runs for no apparent reason. He's been working well enough at home, and we've put the blinkers on to try to sharpen him up."
Andrew Balding, trainer of Highland Knight "He's certainly going the right way and I was very pleased with the way he won his maiden at Lingfield last time. I would think he'd have a good chance." Mick Channon, trainer of Finest Reserve "He's an improver. He's a lovely, big horse and I'm very hopeful."
Richard Hannon, trainer of First Cat "This fellow has been so consistent and his third to Fontley at Sandown looks even better following the winner's second in a Listed race back there."
Ralph Beckett, trainer of King Of Windsor "The handicapper has not been very kind in putting him up 3lb for beating that lot at Ayr but the step up to a mile will help and he's in good nick."
