Verdict

Bella Montagna has been off since September 2011 whilst Ocean Club has his first run since joining Brian Ellison. Experimentalist has won over this trip at Fontwell this term and wasn't at all disgraced behind Sky Khan last time over 2m at Uttoxeter. However, Gordon Elliott has his usual raiding party in place and kicks off with DANTES KING, who delivered major improvement last time at this track when easily disposing of his rivals over 3m. The drop in trip should present no problem and he is the preferred choice in receipt of 7lb from the Vaughan charge.
