Verdict

This has attracted a big field and those drawn high will have to break smartly if they are to avoid taking the scenic route. They include Tapis Libre, who is on a five-timer, San Cassiano and course and distance winner Forget Me Not Lane. Kashmir Peak shaped with promise on his return to the Flat at Ayr while the once-raced Ajman Bridge could be anything. Blighty had little more than an exercise canter at Southwell and is also unexposed while Wellingrove shouldn't be far away. But TRIPLE EIGHT had excuses when a beaten favourite at Ripon and is fancied to recapture the winning thread as he's undoubtedly improved this year.
