Verdict

Today's drop in class should help Rocket Rob finish closer after a couple of starts at Newmarket but ROYAL ACQUISITION is preferred. He's separated a couple of modest efforts on Turf with victories on the Polytrack and this is less competitive than the race he won at Kempton in June. Robert Cowell's colt gets the vote as Shawkantango is having his first start since May and Another Citizen arrives badly out of form. Dangerous Age will appreciate the return to the all-weather but is 9lb higher than last month's win at Lingfield.
