In depth

Verdict

None of these can be easily dismissed. Vibrato Valtat won a bumper when trained in France and has to come into the reckoning now representing the Nicholls team while Juno The Muffinman has been in fine form over hurdles. The latter's stablemate Third Half and Rano Pano are both winners on the Flat at this track and could figure but the tentative vote goes to DOCS LEGACY. He's also a winner on the level here but his recent placed efforts over timber are a match for any of today's rivals and Richard Fahey's charge can come out best.
