Verdict

Richard Hannon has won this twice in recent years' including with Eucharist 12 months ago. He saddles four this time around with Richard Hughes partnering Tell Dad, who should do better back over 6f. Ryan Moore rides Airborne Again, who wasn't disgraced in the Weatherby's Super Sprint, while Amis Reunis is bidding for a hat-trick after wins at Windsor and Bath. Lightly-raced Chepstow winner Avon Pearl is improving but so is SAFARI STORM. Brian Meehan's son of Dubawi left earlier efforts well behind when scoring decisively over 5f at Sandown. This easy 6f should also be to his liking and there's a chance he's still a step ahead of the handicapper so he gets the vote.
