Verdict

Franciscan won this last year off the same mark but has barely raised a gallop since and is now tried in blinkers. It's unlikely the lack of a recent run will unduly hamper Ace Of Valhalla and Sir Henry Cecil's lightly-raced colt has to go on the short-list while High Office ran a lot better than the bare result suggests here 10 days ago, though has a bit to find with Bollin Greta on today's terms. ROMAN FLIGHT has only run five times on the Flat and has won two of his three starts on Turf. He looked a step ahead of the handicapper when scoring easily at Thirsk two weeks ago and it would be no surprise to see him defy a 10lb higher mark here. Sirvino is still capable on his day and could make the frame but Rio's Rosanna needs softer ground and didn't look very keen here last time and Singzak is likely to struggle from 4lb out of the handicap.
