Verdict

Refusal may well enjoy the drop back to 2m having failed to quicken when third over 2m5f here 10 days ago. Le Grand Chene was raised 9lb after winning at Chepstow but is another with solid claims while Morgan's Bay should confirm Ludlow running with the disappointing To Live and may be capable of some improvement. STARSKY DES MOTTES has done enough this season to suggest he can land a race like this and he gets the nod with Unwanted Gift little better than a plater and both Great Kicker and Rebel High lacking a recent run.
