Verdict

Victoire De Lyphar bounced back to form at Redcar eight days ago and is still feasibly handicapped, despite a penalty. But he's not exactly consistent and all of his victories have come on a fast surface. ORBIT THE MOON was only beaten a neck by My Name Is Rio over 6f here on Thursday and the pair finished seven lengths clear of the remainder. He's just as effective over this extra furlong and appears to have the beating of Teetotal on the form book so gets the nod today ahead of the consistent Royal Holiday. Sunrise Dance and Old Man Clegg have claims on their best form but Canon Law is proving disappointing.
