Verdict

Continuum continues to climb the weights but you can't ignore his progressive form and he seems sure to be thereabouts again. Sir Bedivere had excuses last time and is proven on soft ground. He looks a better bet than fellow three-year-old She's Late but Sadler's Risk disappointed last time and is now tried in a visor while All The Aces is struggling to recapture his best form. Charles Camoin's best form is over 1m2f but Samba King could figure if fully wound-up following a lengthy absence. SULA TWO stays further than this and is still 3lb higher than when successful over 2m here in July but the ground won't be a problem and Philip Prince claims a valuable 3lb. He could upset better-fancied rivals.
