Verdict

Englishman has been threatening a return to winning ways and makes more appeal than The Confessor, who won this in 2012 but has been well beaten over track and trip of late. Liberty Jack won well at Newmarket last time and could figure along with Lulu The Zulu and Gatepost while Ryan Moore takes over the reins on George Rooke. Brave Echo beat Related over course and distance last month and is another to consider as is Bluegrass Blues. But a speculative vote goes to ACCESSION, a winner at Kempton in May and third in this contest last year when trained by Clive Cox.
