Verdict

Jacqueline Coward is an experienced rider and partners Tapis Libre, who dead-heated for first place in a similar contest at Haydock in May when Tenhoo was back in third. But trainer Mick Easterby sets a poser as he also saddles CITY GROUND, who won off a higher mark on the Polytrack exactly a month ago. Serena Brotherton's presence in the saddle suggests he's fancied to translate that form to Turf. Merchant Of Medici is starting to come down the weights and is entitled to run well while El Bravo made all at Doncaster on Saturday but has a penalty to contend with in this.
