Verdict

A different test for Legal Legacy given the bigger field and a penalty so preference instead is for the in-form MIAMI GATOR. Ridden by Charlie Swan in this one-off Charity Race (under rules), Elaine Burke's gelding should get every assistance from the saddle and his uncomplicated front-running style might be advantageous. Legal Legacy had to wait ages for a gap at Thirsk when upped to this trip for the first time but he quickened nicely and is considered, along with the hold-up horse Grand Diamond and the in-form Rising Kheleyf. The market might be informative in this race, with any sustained support for Aflaam, Archie Rice or Army Of Stars (trained and ridden by Jamie Osborne, as Eastern Gift is by Gay Kelleway) to be taken seriously. Dark Moment is well handicapped, a comment that also applies to Kinsya and Nevada Desert.
