Verdict

Lady Heidi and recent Ripon winner Greed Is Good look to have a bit to find but the remainder are closely matched on paper at least. However, Riverboat Springs doesn't arrive in the best of form and Day Of Conquest has yet to encounter soft ground. Neither has Safety Check, though the latter won nicely at Newmarket before finding life tough in Group 3 company last time. BOW CREEK won over today's trip earlier and ran out a six-length winner in soft ground at Newbury last month. He looks the safest bet to run his race and gets the nod.
