Verdict

When AP McCoy and Jim Best team up it usually pays to take note and MYCENEAN PRINCE looks a good bet to win this race. The horse scored tidily here last time and although he's 10lbs higher this is arguably less competitive; indeed the trainer is an expert placer of horses and this looks a fine example of that. Of the rest Frosty's Gift makes most appeal as she wasn't far behind Mycenean Prince on her latest start and at the weights she could get close enough to go a place better and take second, although Looks The Business is fairly handicapped on his flat form and would be a threat if the ground stays quick. Diamanpeg is dropping quickly in the weights having failed to get off the mark but perhaps better ground will help him too while Babe Maccool represents a top yard and is respected in a visor for the first time, but Mycenean Prince will be very hard to beat.
