In depth

Verdict

Benefique Royale and Vieux Lion Rouge both have solid NH pedigrees and are likely to be prominent in this field on newcomers in which the emphasis will definitely be on stamina. But Anthony Honeyball has an excellent strike rate on this course and, with Rachael Green excellent value for her 3lb claim, we'll take a chance that the Flat-bred SOLSTICE SON lasts home and will know what's required at the first time of asking. Alongthewatchtower is possibly most interesting of the others.
