The Sportsman's Verdict
Venturous arrives here on the back of a victory at Wolverhampton last month and he has to be respected back on turf today. That said, the preference is for GNAAD, who was less than a length behind the winner at Ascot a couple of weeks ago and he should take plenty of beating off just 1lb higher in the ratings today. Others to consider are Dr Doro, Maygold and Peggie Sue.
