Verdict

Plenty with claims in this. Kruzhlinin took advantage of a slide down the weights when winning over track and trip last time but has been raised 8lb and is one of the more exposed. Rossini's Dancer is upped the same amount on the back of a win at Aintree but should still go well, while Night Alliance has a 10lb hike to contend with after scoring at Ascot. The latter is not easily dismissed but the tentative vote goes to NO PLANNING, who proved well suited to longer trips when beating previous hat trick winner Denali Highway over 3m1f at Wetherby last time.
