Number One London never threatened despite finishing third at Chester on his first attempt at today's distance. He did have Maraweh well behind, however, and should figure again. Excellent Result was a big disappointment on his return at Newbury and, although his yard is in better form now, the Godolphin colt still has plenty to make up with DRAGON CITY on latest running. The latter also had Dalaklear behind when fifth at Newbury and Harry Dunlop's charge gets the nod in this. Legends and Poyle Thomas look newcomers to keep an eye on in the betting.
