Verdict

Royale Knight is turned out again quickly after recouping Newton Abbot losses at Fontwell on Saturday. He can race off the same mark and McCoy takes over the reins but all of his form is on soft ground and this looks a lot more competitive. Fresher Fishing and course specialist Overton Lad have claims if fully wound-up for their reappearance while veteran Marked Man also knows how to win around here. Kilvergan Boy is likely to find at least one too good again, however, and Safe Investment appears to be going backwards. ROI DE GARDE can be a little erratic but beat Ifonlyalfie by 25 lengths at Market Rasen in May. Matthew Stanley has a good record on the six-year-old and is back in the saddle - the partnership can bounce back to winning ways here.
