Verdict

Rouge Et Blanc can race off the same mark as when second at Ascot on Saturday but this is a slightly better race. Elenika has struggled a little since winning at Huntingdon last month and may be a few pounds too high but Rody should improve for his second at Hereford, though CHARACTER ACTOR is probably more interesting. The Irish raider has run well in all three starts this season and is fancied to go one better than at Gowran last time as he is suited by heavy ground. Nobunaga and Mon Chevalier have both had a break and may need this.
