Verdict

KINGS TROOP and Jimmy McCarthy won this novelty race in 2010 and finished third in last year's renewal off a much higher mark. He gets the token vote to reverse running on much better terms with last year's winner Shesha Bear and win it again. Course specialist and 2009 winner Epsom Salts finished fourth last term but is 9lb higher this time around having scored over C&D in July. Novirak went close over track and trip last time when finding only Enery too good but the winning runs of Standpoint and Lieutenant Kojak came to an end on their latest starts at York and Ascot respectively.
