Verdict

Media Baron interrupted a four-year winning run by Satwa King when successful in this two years ago but has hardly picked his feet up subsequently. Billybuster hasn't been beaten far in his last two runs and Mark Enright's claim is a bonus but Do The Bookies is still a maiden after 18 career starts and is still high enough in the weights. WAR OF WORDS is only moderate but at least arrives in good form having been placed on his last three starts, all over further. It shouldn't do any harm reverting to the minimum trip and he's handed the vote over Rising Altitude, who has a bit more potential but hasn't been seen since falling at Ballinrobe in May.
