In depth

Verdict

A very modest opener which won't take much winning, despite the numbers. Realta Mo Croi won at Fontwell in June but hasn't been seen since. Je T'Aime keeps find one too good and needs some help from the handicapper while Sapphire Rouge is still 5lb higher than when scoring at Fontwell in May. Marie Deja La appears to have lost her way and NIKI ROYAL has shown nothing over fences this season. But the top weight is well treated back over timber and, helped by a first-time visor, still has the ability to take a race like this.
