Verdict

Unknown Villain comes out best on official ratings but arrives out of form and is overlooked in favour of RICH FOREVER, who was noted putting in a strong late burst over an extended 7f at Beverley last time and will be ideally suited by this trip, especially with Paul Hanagan keeping the ride. Neither Dark Ocean nor Aglaophonos have ever won a race and both were beaten favourites last time while World Record was beaten a long way at Carlisle.
