Verdict

MAKHFAR is rated 6lb higher than Royal Connoisseur and should be up to winning this. He couldn't quite match the pace at Amber Isle at Lingfield last week but may just have needed the run and Richard Fahey's charge was disappointing here last month when sent off favourite. Celestial Knight was third on his debut at Kempton in October but never really figured on his reappearance at Windsor and may need more time.
