Verdict

AUREATE's defeat of Whitcombe Spirit at Fontwell was a giant step forward. He can defy a 5lb mark to follow up as the runner-up has been well beaten at Taunton since and is unreliable. Gilded Age would have solid claims on his best form and Noble Chic and Marble Walk both made the frame last time but Romney Marsh is an infrequent winner and has never scored off a mark this high. The remainder make little appeal on what they've shown so far.
