Verdict

Star Ascending has the best piece of form of those with experience but never threatened when fourth at Ripon. He may do better over this extra distance but a chance is taken on BATTLERANGER. Keith Dalgleish has trained the winner in two of the last three renewals and his half-brother to dual winner Aint Got A Scooby gets the nod to make a winning start. Three Merry Lads can include the high-class Excellent Art among his winning relatives and Jumeirah Glory is a half-brother to a winner in Italy.
