Verdict

BENNYS MIST could hardly have been more impressive when forging clear over track and trip two weeks ago. All but one of his six career victories have come on heavy going and, with conditions in his favour again, Venetia Williams' charge should take all the beating today despite a 6lb higher mark. Bertie Boru is another recent course and distance winner who may still be fairly treated but Ultragold could be a bigger threat now back in form. Coolking won't mind the ground and is also interesting while Forgotten Gold has been a bit unlucky so far this season. Requin could figure with a recent pipe-opener under his belt and preferred to Rouge Et Blanc of the remainder.
