Verdict

Roy's Legacy has won at over the minimum at Doncaster and Kempton over the last couple of months while Irish Girls Spirit rarely runs a bad race. Hadrians Rule is another three-year-old with decent claims and Ingenti won easily at Catterick last month, though is 8lb higher now. Linda Perratt is mob-handed and both Distant Sun and Arriva La Diva are C&D winners but so is HERE NOW AND WHY and Ian Semple's ran well here again last time when third to Imperial Legend. Dropped a couple of pounds since, he should go close in this finale. Arch Walker has had plenty of chances lately but has still come up short and that may be the case again here.
