Verdict

Or De Grugy loves it here and, though a couple of pounds higher than when only beaten a short-head over course and distance by Mister Marker last time, has leading claims again. Harris Hawk isn't badly handicapped but was a long way behind Fiddlers Reel at Wetherby and is now tried in blinkers. Kealigolane, Rockawango, Chavoy and Ros Castle all have something to prove after poor showings last time but FENTARA returned to form with a good second over a longer trip here last month. Mark Walford's mare can gain a deserved success today.
