Verdict

MILOSAM has already won three times over track and trip this season. He turned in a poor run at Ludlow last time but bounced from a similar disappointing effort earlier in the campaign to score and still isn't badly treated. Rocky Bender never seems to run two races alike while He's The Daddy and Tresor De La Vie make their chasing debuts, though the latter has won between the flags. Possibly Flora was only beaten a length-and-a-quarter by the selection in December so has place claims again.
