Verdict

Rock Anthem and United Nations seem too inconsistent to trust so we go with the more level form of DAVENPORT. The selection is a course and distance winner in the past and in the last few months has begun to show a return to form. The line from his penultimate run has worked out well and the key should be consistency over recent success. Rock Anthem also has some decent form-lines but seems rather hit or miss. Also a course and distance winner he is now four pounds lower than when recording that last win but he's been off lower recently with limited success. United Nations was a course and distance winner last time but is up seven pounds for that triumph. There's not much to recommend him prior to that but it might be he just likes this track, which he takes on for just the third time. Seems risky to base a punt on what we have for him so we go for Davenport.
