Verdict

Six of the nine runners are already course and distance winners so it's a matter of working out whose turn it is today. Flash City hasn't won on the track but was successful at Nottingham in July. ROYAL BRAVE will find this easier than the Class 3 he contested last time at Goodwood. He'd won at Sandown previously and is preferred to Scoreline, only beaten half-a-length at Newcastle last time. Noble Asset could be best of the rest as he looks better treated than Midnight Dynamo and Lexington Rose.
