Verdict

Not even A P McCoy could get Cool Sky interested at Wetherby last month and Donald McCain's five-year-old is best watched until showing signs of a revival. Hunters Belt, a winner over a longer trip here last month, has gone up 7lb since a subsequent third at Sedgefield but he makes more appeal than Utopian and the four-year-old Most Honourable. CAPTAIN BROWN suffered a heavy fall at the last here in March but was still in front at the time and would probably have held on. A 5lb rise seems harsh but he could run the finish out of these if fully recovered.
