Verdict

RIO SANDS bombed out badly at Beverley but he'd shown plenty of ability in similar races earlier in the year so we are prepared to offer Richard Whitaker's charge another chance. Prince James has not shown a great deal on turf but his maiden success at Wolverhampton showed that he possesses plenty of resolution. Billionaire Boy is exposed as modest though the booking of Paul Hanagan certainly catches the eye. Rothesay Dancer needs little introduction to followers of Scottish racing though the mare has been a little below par this season. Ballarina blasted along at Newcastle to make all earlier in the month. Although apparently harsh on paper, the ease of victory gave the assessor little alternative but to order a 12lb rise in the handicap for the mare.
