Verdict

Russian War has winning form on fast ground and has been competing in decent company. He came up against a well-handicapped rival at Aintree last time and should fare better here. But now is not the time to desert QUEL BALLISTIC, who has finally got his act together since being visored - a hat-trick beckons. Peachey Moment has ability but doesn't win very often nowadays and course and distance winner Wild Geese looks too high in the weights now. Both Dantes King and Quetzal will do well to get involved on these terms.
