Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

Ready preference is for GIFT OF KINGS who impressed when opening his account at Newcastle in a strong handicap and looks more than capable of defying a 3 lb rise. Highwaygrey is always to be feared round here so this triple C&D winner rates next best, although Mascat is another to consider for the in-form Ralph Beckett team.

Betting Forecast

9/4 Gift Of Kings, 7/2 Mascat, 9/1 Homespin (Usa), 9/1 Highwaygrey, 9/1 El Ghazwani (Ire), 40/1 Borodin (Ire), 11/1 Benadalid
