Verdict

Despite his pilot dropping his whip last time out MY KINGDOM was a comfortable winner so he looks to be the best choice in this Handicap with Glen Shiel and Belle Des Airs looking the closest dangers. Prior to the victory for the pick last time he was on a good run of form and that commanding win over Santefisio left the impression there is more to come so he should go well from this revised mark. Glen Shiel looked back to form when only finding Cornus too good on his last run and based on the evidence of his win at Ayr in May should be winning off this mark. Belle Des Airs has won his only start at this venue and a drop in weight and grade from his last run should help him run better. Space Station looks on a progressive run of form this season and was an easy enough winner last time to suggest a bold bid but My Kingdom was very impressive when successful when last seen and gets the vote.
