In depth

Verdict

Royal Wedding may need this and has plenty of weight but Wetherby third Muldoon's Picnic could figure if his suspect jumping doesn't let him down and Bowntobebad is surely a lot better than he showed when well backed on his chasing bow at Stratford, though it appears bottom weight Porters War is the stable selection on jockey bookings. Giant O Murchu has gone backwards lately and Chapel House has struggled this season but there is probably more to come from C&D winner MOSCOW CHANCER and he'll strip fitter for an encouraging reappearance at Huntingdon - he gets the nod.
