Verdict

The top weight has won both previous renewals but Royal Alcor's chance this year isn't obvious. Dumbfounded was only beaten a head on his reappearance at Kempton but has been raised 3lb since and Hell Hath No Fury has a lengthy absence to overcome. No Such Number is fit from a campaign hurdling and Kieren Fallon is a significant jockey booking but the handicapper may have slipped up leaving DR FINLEY on the same mark as when a close-up third at Doncaster 11 days ago. He's running well and can take this as neither veteran Baan nor Berkeley Street have shown much lately.
