Verdict

ROYALE KNIGHT has won twice over fences and once over hurdles since resuming his career back under Rules. It was a conditionals' event that he won over the smaller obstacles at Plumpton last time so he has no penalty here and, proven on the ground, he'll be a short price to complete a four-timer. Romney Marsh may have needed her run at Plumpton last month and is probably the one for forecast-backers though Sweet Prince arguably has more scope, despite showing little so far. The others are easy to ignore.
