Verdict

Diesel Ten had been in poor form over hurdles before unseating his rider at the start of the Irish Lincoln on his return to the Flat. DALKOVA started out with Sir Michael Stoute than went to Richard Hannon. He managed a maiden victory at Ascot in 2012 and should be up to winning this for Johnny Murtagh. Erlkonig has joined Tony Mullins after scoring twice in Germany, including on his debut, so he may be fit enough for his reappearance. Diplomat completed a double over hurdles on good ground last summer but hasn't done as well on softer going. Einsteins Folly did well as a two-year-old and looked set for a good second campaign but didn't make the expected progress.
