Verdict

Take The Breeze was good value for his win at Sandown in November but an 8lb rise for that success made life more difficult for the Paul Nicholls-trained gelding at Ascot subsequently and, off the same mark again today, he looks best watched with preference for SMOOTHLY DOES IT, who gets the vote over Make Haste. The son of Sadler's Wells should appreciate the drop back in trip today having seemingly not stayed 2m6f at Ascot last time and given the good form of runners from the yard of Venetia Williams, he has to be respected. Don McCain's Mohayer was very disappointing at Musselburgh last time but would have claims on earlier form and he does come from a stable in good heart. Picot De Say has a nice racing weight and could be of interest back over hurdles having been running over fences of late. The vote though goes to Jim Best's Smoothly Does It, who was still there with every chance when falling two out at Hereford last time and, on ground that suits, he looks worth chancing.
