Verdict

ROYAL WEDDING is two out of two around here and, though racing for the first time since April 2011, usually plies his trade at a higher level and goes well fresh. He can concede weight to inferior rivals. Mission Complete and Last Shot still have some scope, however, and Venetian Lad is another regular here and has won two of his last three, though over further than this. Papradon has been a reformed character this year but Bai Zhu has become disappointing and Tout Regulier didn't build on his victory in Bangor in August. Sawago may also find a few of these too strong.
