Verdict

After taking all the recent trends into consideration nothing ticks every box, the three to concentrate on though are Equilateral who I have eliminated due to age and inexperience, Projection who has never visited Newbury before and Bacchus who landed a bit of a coup when winning the Wokingham last time, preference is for the latter who has the services of Frankie Dettori in the saddle and has a previous course win under his belt.
