In depth

Verdict

Menelik steps up a couple of grades after winning at Wolverhampton last week but both Our Boy Jack and Jinky were placed in similar company last time and can race off the same marks today. Fieldgunner Kirkup would prefer some cut in the ground while Alejandro is proving hard to win with having failed to score since 2011. TWENTY ONE CHOICE was burdened with an 8lb rise after landing a four-timer at Kempton in April but wasn't beaten far when fifth at Ascot to the progressive Rockalong. This is less competitive and Ed De Giles charge may not have finished winning yet.
