Verdict

Understory was winning for the third time over course and distance when successful here last month. He has every chance again but STANDPOINT posted a better effort at Beverley last time and, having slipped down the weights, it could be his turn today. Russian Storm has the past form to figure but hasn't raced for over a year and both of Divine Rule's previous wins came over a shorter trip. Better is expected from Chrissycross back on the Polytrack and Langham Lily has claims on last season's best form so they look best of the rest
