Verdict

A very decent contest for the time of year and Chris Ward's claim will help the consistent Changing The Guard. Akula ran better than expected at Newton Abbot following a break and may again beat the disappointing Sud Pacifique, but Tindaro's recent victory at Kempton came over fences and his future probably lies in that sphere. ALL THAT REMAINS finally got off the mark at Kelso last time but has been bumped up 8lb for that success. His confidence will have been boosted however and, with his yard still in cracking form, he may be good enough to land this ahead of Taunton fourth Knight In Purple providing there's a decent pace. Distant Memories was well behind Changing The Guard at Aintree and looks a little out of sorts at present.
