Verdict

King Zeal has held his form remarkably well this term and keeps finding some sort of answer to the handicapper's questions, but with competition on for the lead he's taken on here in favour of COUNT CEPRANO. Jeff Pearce's gelding has been hit hard by the handicapper for winning three times at this trip of late but he's worth the latest 11lb rise and can go in again with conditions to suit. Mistoffelees is a couple of pounds higher than when well beaten at Ascot and unless this return to a left-handed track helps him massively the Cumani horse is opposable, with Marjury Daw a bigger threat. She's got work on with King Zeal off just 4lb better terms that when beaten by that horse earlier this term but the latter got an easy lead that day. Bavarica ties in closely with Marjury Daw and has a talented pilot on board so cannot be overlooked.
