In depth

Verdict

Papradon and Rouge Et Blanc are high enough in the weights at present but both have place claims again in this grade, though the former lacks a recent run. Noble Witness was never travelling and pulled up at Towcester last week, however, while Special Robon looks to have a mind of his own and Irish Guard is looking a light of former days. LOUGH COI, on the other hand, is really starting to blossom and a 7lb penalty for last week's win at Leicester may not be enough to prevent the hat-trick.
