In depth

Verdict

The market should tell us whether Nodebateaboutit is ready for this after a lay-off. He wouldn't be without a chance at the weights. Leg Iron has also been absent for a while but the others have all had at least one outing this season, though African Broadway and Strongbows Legend were pulled up last time and Well Refreshed fell here last month when just getting the worst of an argument with Pete The Feat. MOHI RAHRERE has won on heavy ground and stays really well. He may still be a couple of pounds too high in the weights but could still take this with Rigadin de Beauchene possibly better over slightly shorter. Carpincho may just need another run to put him straight.
