Verdict

Leg Iron posted a better effort when runner-up at Fontwell with Emperor Concerto well behind. He could go close again but Franklin Roosevelt's winning run came to an end when well beaten at Wetherby last time. OLD DREAMS made a promising start to her chasing career when just failing to catch Queen Of Mantua at Towcester last month. Nick Gifford's mare looks capable of winning at this level and gets the nod with the quirky Lajidaal making most appeal of the rest.
