ROYALE KNIGHT has won his last four starts and is the one to beat in this. A couple of those wins came over fences including a win over C&D with today's conditional on board and he'll start a short-price to go in again here. Rash Moment had been threatening to score before a below par effort at this track last time but Meet Me At Dawn has shown nothing in three starts over fences so far and the remaining pair are even harder to fancy.
