Verdict

Standpoint has done all his winning over shorter trips, including over 1m2f at this track last week. Cornish Beau scored over track and trip last time but he's been raised 5lb and is upped in class for this. Saint Helena was still beaten eight lengths when second at Windsor recently so preference is for FOXHAVEN. The latter bids for a hat-trick having won his last couple of starts over 1m3f but this extra furlong is no problem for Patrick Chamings' veteran and he gets the vote.
