Verdict

Mount Athos ran on well when fourth in the Chester Cup last month but he'll be short enough in the betting here considering he's 9lb higher than his latest win at Dundalk. Sirvino has an 11lb rise in the weights to contend with after his easy win at Windsor last Saturday, but 2007 winner Dansili Dancer has slipped down the weights and could go well. If forgiven his latest no show in soft ground at Ascot, then Sharaayeen has solid claims on his earlier placed efforts in competitive handicaps at Newmarket while Classic Vintage just got the better of Granston here last time, though both are upped in class today along with The Fonz. BOURNE will also need to improve but the lightly-raced five-year-old should come into his own this year and, despite a disappointing effort at Epsom last time, gets the nod in a race won three times in the last seven years by Luca Cumani.
