Verdict

Rich Again has the form to win this and isn't badly treated despite a big weight but his form to date has been on fast ground. LEES ANTHEM is hardly a prolific winner but ran his best race for a long time over 6f on soft ground here last time where he had every chance at this trip. He's handed the vote in the expectation of easy ground though One Kool Dude, another with a very poor strike-rate, has run well on his last two starts on this track. Sir Geoffrey is 5lb higher than his last success though he didn't run badly at Goodwood last month.
