Verdict

Copperwood has won 14 of his 97 races and probably hasn't finished yet despite being beaten here on Tuesday when he completely missed the break. His previous run at Epsom, where he made all with the favourite Highland Duke a length back in third, suggests he will be competitive here. Commend has flattered to deceive but has dropped to a winnable mark and has to be respected along with Xinbama, whose two recent victories have been at Epsom. Mean It has done really well on soft ground and looks well enough treated to run a big race but the vote goes to REE'S RASCAL, who was a bit unlucky at this fixture a year ago and has bounced back to form with a Newbury victory and a good second to Gaul Wood at Windsor.
