Verdict

Santefisio, Prince Of Johanne and Es Que Love all contested the Royal Hunt Cup on Wednesday and are bidding for quick compensation but others make more appeal. Enrol is sure to be popular as she'd won three in a row prior to going down by a nose to Nocturn over 6f at Newmarket. She was staying on well that day and the extra furlong won't be a problem. Highland Colori has a decent record in these big handicaps and was impressive when getting back to winning ways at Newmarket while Bertiewhittle was only beaten half-a-length over course and distance in the Victoria Cup last month and had a number of these in arrears. One of those was LIGHTNING CLOUD but Kevin Ryan's grey probably saw too much daylight and can be forgiven that effort. He definitely has the ability to win one of these off his current mark and today could be his day drawn right up against the stands' rail, though there are plenty of dangers. Ascot fourth Emilio Largo can reverse that running with Democretes as he looks as though he's been laid out for this while none of David O'Meara's quintet can be left out of calculations. Mont Ras, partnered by Joseph O'Brien, may be the pick of them. Jamesie and Johnny Murtagh's Campanology also go on the short-list.
