Verdict

Stuart Williams saddles just one runner at the meeting and MY KINGDOM appears to have been presented with a very fair draw to work from. While his last two victories have been over 6f, he is a winner over seven so should be able to see out this very stiff trip. Colonel Mak is an admirable campaigner that needs little introduction. David Barron's six-year-old could literally be thrown in off a mark of 86 and any rain would add considerably to his chances. Orbit The Moon was a 20/1 outsider when winning this race 12 months ago and Michael Dods' inmate has struggled to get his head in front since. Al Khan is entered at York on Saturday and could be a doubtful runner.
