Verdict

I'msingingtheblues has his sights lowered and wasn't disgraced over a longer trip at Cheltenham last week. He had stablemate Consigliere behind at that track last month. Fine Parchment has been in good form but has attracted the handicapper's attention and has more on his plate here. Nikola is only a pound higher than when second to Frankie Figg at Aintree, however, and Prince De Beauchene is steadily coming to hand. But the selection is RIVALISTE, who will handle the going better than most and was still travelling within himself when uncharacteristically coming to grief at Newbury last time. With a clear round here, he should prove hard to beat.
