In depth

Verdict

Royale's Charter has yet to recapture last year's useful form while Wings Of Smoke has his first run since finishing tailed off at Haydock in March, though has gone well fresh in the past. SAGREDO could be another for Jonjo O'Neill and A P McCoy as he won over track and trip last year and his latest second at Sedgefield suggests he's back on a decent mark. Citrus Mark was only beaten three lengths off today's mark here last month and is in good form. He may be the danger as Spock appears to be going backwards and Woody Waller was due to run at Perth yesterday.
