Verdict

Only a couple of favourites have obliged in the last 10 years. Last year's runner-up, Ermyn Lodge, looks to have been laid out for this though he arrived in much better form last time and 2010 winner, Aaim To Prosper, hasn't won again since. Motivado failed to land a gamble in the Ebor but ran well for fourth and has claims along with Doncaster Cup third Hurricane Higgins. Tominator finished fourth at Doncaster last time just ahead of Western Prize with Blue Bajan, Martyr and subsequent winner O Ma Lad further behind while Triumph Hurdle winner Countrywide Flame beat Martial Law at Chester on last month's return to action and should figure. Beyond was well beaten in this last year along with Sentry Duty but ran well over 2m5f at Goodwood when Hurricane Higgins won and makes more appeal than stablemate Ashbrittle. Three-year-olds don't have a great recent record although Montaser and I Have A Dream are both respected but the speculative vote goes to OLYMPIAD. Dermot Weld's lightly-raced colt beat Very Good Day over 2m at York last time and will stay every yard of today's marathon trip.
