Verdict

A tricky-looking finale in which most have some sort of chance. My Lord beat Judiciary by a length over course and distance last month with Hi Tide back in third. But he's 8lb higher now and has disappointed on the Flat since. Bombadero was beaten in a seller at Chepstow at the start of the month but Qoubilai races off the same mark as when a close-up second at Market Rasen and should figure. MAKARI goes well fresh so a recent absence isn't a concern. Nicky Henderson's six-year-old remains unexposed and can take this with Taroum looking to be in the handicapper's grip now.
