Verdict

EXOTIC GUEST won over course and distance in June and, though 4lb higher, has run well since at Ayr. Conditions won't be a problem and Ruth Carr's four-year-old may be capable of defying top weight as most of his rivals struggle to get their heads in front. Bearskin is an exception as he got off the mark at Ripon last time, though might struggle off an 8lb higher mark. Rachel Richardson's claim will help Foreign Rhythm but Mission Impossible remains expensive to follow, as does Less Anthem. Royal Duchess made a pleasing comeback at Ayr any may be the pick of the remainder ahead of Dartrix and Emily Davison.
