Verdict

A pretty good renewal of this Grade 2 with the weights headed by last season's King George runner-up Captain Chris, who represents the trainer/jockey combination responsible for last year's winner. Conquisto and Alasi have both won this term but may lack the quality to get competitive at this level. Ghizao was a little disappointing last season and pulled up when Champion Court won at Cheltenham in April. Martin Keighley's runner didn't fare badly on his reappearance in the Paddy Power but the weights may favour MODULE and Riverside Theatre. The latter is a smart performer on his day and finished ahead of Champion Court and Ghizao in the Ryanair in March but he was well behind Captain Chris at Punchestown subsequently and Tom George's six-year-old has more scope. His second to Somersby in the Haldon Gold Cup at Exeter is already working out and there should be plenty more to come.
