Verdict

Our three for this race are MASTERSHIP, Giganticus and Atlantic Story with John Quinn's runner getting the nod. His selection is in no small part due to the presence of Johnny Murtagh in the saddle as the Irishman is riding at the top of his game this season and will need to be so here to deliver this tricky ride at the right time. Mastership looked to be a shrewd acquisition by the Yorkshire trainer as he has the scope to win a big prize such as this from his current mark. He was beaten under four lengths over course and distance in the International on his penultimate start before his run at Kempton where he didn't get the requisite cover. He should get plenty of that here and it's a question of whether the gaps appear at the right time and whether the draw has a part to play and with the latter such a concern it seems prudent to have a runner on each side and, of those drawn low Giganticus makes plenty of appeal. He wasn't been far in the International from the same mark as today and appears to have been aimed at this race; he's unlikely to be far away. Stablemate Zaahid shouldn't be dismissed out of hand as he had looked useful earlier in the season and may be able to bounce back but we'll put Atlantic Story forwards as our third nomination. Mick Easterby's gelding has been far more successful on the all-weather than turf but his handicap mark reflects that and he ran well enough on ground that wouldn't have suited on his first outing since May. This longer trip will suit, the run will have brought him on and he appeals as one of the more interesting outsiders.
