Verdict

MORNING ROYALTY got off the mark over timber with a 10 length victory over C&D last month. James Moffatt's charge can shrug off a 7lb penalty and go in again on that evidence. Jumbo Supreme finished closer at Uttoxeter last time and jockey bookings suggest he's preferred to stablemate and newcomer Thundercrack while bumper winner Rocking Blues looks a likely improver with a debut over hurdles at Newcastle under his belt. Painted Tail has won twice on the Flat and could prove best of the rest on her hurdling bow.
