Verdict

ROYAL MARSKELL beat Saint Thomas here in July and is only a couple of pounds higher. He lost nothing in defeat over a longer trip on the Fibresand last time and there is no reason why he won't go close in this. Fractal is the potential fly in the ointment but hasn't raced since landing a maiden on the Polytrack in January. Storm Rider is 5lb higher than when scoring at Windsor but can't be ignored and makes more appeal than Syncopate and the disappointing Moshe.
