Conditions look right for Darasim; Gene Genie.
It defies conventional pedigree to think how Duke Of Venice managed two miles at Ascot last year, but he is from a genetic grouping that tends to get better with age and over extended distances.
Lochbuie and Lost Soldier Three are both from genetic groups that score reasonably well over the trip and can also improve. The well-bred Wolfe Tone is from a reliable family, but has not yet benefited from a two-mile test.
Of the older horses, Cover Up has by far the best genetic score but his absence from the track is of concern. Both Alcazar and Darasim, in particular, score genetically well over the distance and, with better ground, the latter can again run to his true potential.
Selection: 2.50 Sandown: Darasim, 1pt each-way
