Verdict

The incredible veteran Kasbah Bliss could have been racing at Cheltenham in a couple of weeks time but finds himself here and produced a good run over a trip too short on his only Dubai start a year ago. Opinion Poll found Fame And Glory blocking his path twice last summer including in the Gold Cup though he did manage Group 2 victories at Goodwood and York. He's obviously a high-class stayer but hasn't run since October and couldn't win in three starts here a year ago. Averroes came here three weeks ago in excellent form but had no answer to FOX HUNT, who was having his first start since a fine effort in the Melbourne Cup and gained a very impressive success. Glen's Diamond is held on that last run while the former Mark Johnston-trained gelding had the progressive Modun a long way behind at Flemington and should be good enough to take this.
