In depth

Verdict

Easier conditions are a slight concern but VON GALEN won so easily over a longer trip here last month that a 12lb rise in the weights may not be enough to prevent a follow-up as most of his rivals arrive either out of form or after a break. Endofdiscusion was only beaten a neck over 2m4f here in April and may have a bit of scope while Wincanton third Glenwood Prince is eased in grade. Ballyvoneen showed a bit more when fourth at Southwell last month but Bravo Riquet and Salut Honore may just need this.
