There will be no hanging about in this finale as a few of these like to race prominently. One is top weight Peterkin, who has been much improved since dropping back to 5f and is only a pound higher than when scoring at Chester last month. Money Team is going well and looks the stable pick with Ryan Moore in the saddle but is closely matched with Online Alexander on Redcar running while Desert Ace has more on his plate than when scoring at Bath and Nottingham. WAR SPIRIT looks the one to beat as he goes from strength-to-strength and had the re-opposing Captain Myles behind when completing his hat-trick at Haydock having comfortably held off Groundworker at Newmarket earlier. Royal Brave may be the pick of the remainder.
