Verdict

BLESSINGTON returned a losing favourite at Kempton in January. But last season's form on Turf was more convincing and he gets the nod on his second at Ascot in October. Trucanini landed a treble over 7f last year while Discussiontofollow recorded a hat-trick of 6f victories on the all-weather when successful Kempton last time. The latter is upped 10lb today and Joey's Destiny is preferred after going close on his comeback at Doncaster when second to Flyman. Midnight Rider is another to consider on a couple of placed efforts at Newmarket and Dominate won in soft ground over course and distance at this time last year. Palace Moon is looking to end a long losing run and went close to doing so at Lingfield last time.
