Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

Hard to rule out any but GUERNESEY was edged out only in the dying strides by a subsequent winner at Warwick last week and looks the most persuasive option from an unchanged mark (due to go up 4 lb). An Tailliur has been on a roll and remains open to improvement following an early unseat at Cheltenham, while Dargiannini retains potential judged on his exploits for Harry Whittington last season.

Betting Forecast

7/1 Molliana, 11/2 Dargiannini (Ire), 5/1 Guernesey (Fr), 7/1 Grisbi De Berce (Fr), 8/1 Mister Allegro, 10/3 An Tailliur (Fr), 13/2 Opening Bid
