Verdict

CHEERS BUDDY is in tremendous form and was brought with a superb late challenge to beat several of these here a fortnight ago. He's gone up 5lb as a result and will find this tougher with runner-up The Black Devil, third-placed Ningaloo Reef, the fourth Beat The Ballot and fifth Alvar all close enough to be a threat on the revised terms though the winner is taken to come out on top again and complete a hat-trick. Reckless Las was beaten 7l by the selection earlier and has it all to do but another three-year-old, Danseur De Feu, looks a danger as she stayed on very strongly to beat Mountain Coral over 7f last month.
