Verdict

Eastlake has enjoyed a successful season but was due to run here yesterday. Petit Robin wasn't disgraced back over fences at Cheltenham in a race in which His Excellency was a faller having finished third in the Arkle just three days earlier. He was also fourth in a Grade 1 at Aintree but has had a busy campaign. Pepite Rose was just touched off at Haydock last month but this looks on the sharp side for Venetia Williams' mare. Conquisto is rarely far away but SACRE TOI couldn't be in better form and has already proved himself over course and distance. Though a couple of pounds out of the handicap, we'll take James Ewart's seven-year-old to repel the southern raiders and complete the hat-trick.
