Only two winners have returned at single-figure odds in the last 10 renewals. Horsted Keynes will start somewhere near the head of the betting after a narrow defeat in the Buckingham Palace here and is expected reverse running with the winner Louis The Pious. Watchable and Bronze Angel finished third and fourth respectively in the Buckingham and the latter has subsequently won at York. Field Of Dream won this in 2012 but may have already peaked for this year with victory in the Royal Hunt Cup last month and Belgian Bill could well turn the tables with the former. Abseil's progress looks to have come to a halt for now but Redvers, Brazos and Pastoral Player are all course and distance winners with a shout. KING TORUS steps up in class bidding for a four-timer but is improving at a rate of knots and given a high draw is no hindrance, Ruth Carr's charge gets a speculative vote.
