Verdict

RIVER FALCON loves his racing at York and can gain a fourth course and distance win if all goes to plan for him. Valery Borzov and Abraham Lincoln run for the irrepressible David Nicholls and both have to be respected, while Excusez Moi has bounced back to form with a couple of wins under his belt of late. The last named has made the most of a drop in the ratings and should again be on the premises despite carrying 6lb extra. Abraham Lincoln - a one-time Ballydoyle inmate - has a touch of class and it can only be a matter of time before Nicholls works his magic on him. However, the jockey bookings suggest he is a work in progress and Valery Borzov may be the best hope for the Thirsk-based handler today. Nevertheless, when it come to horses-for-courses River Falcon knows York inside out and he can be a solid fancy to provide the biggest thrill in what is likely to be a grandstand finish.
