Verdict

AMERICAN LIFE is a rare runner here for Buckinghamshire trainer Anthony Middleton and he's sure to be suited by this stamina test. He's been taking on better opposition since the turn of the year and is due a change of luck. Hellorboston won when last appearing in this grade and arrives off the back of another decent effort at Perth. Bop Along is lightly-raced and a previous course winner but is closely matched with Forty Crown on the form book. Irish raider See Double You can't be ignored, however, and Summerlea has had a run on the Flat since his seventh at Wetherby. Bollin Fiona likes it here but may be on the downgrade.
