In depth

Verdict

Cadore was still beaten a long way despite finishing second to Civil Unrest over track and trip last time. The latter went on to win again at Kelso where he beat RHYMERS STONE only a length. That form gives Lucinda Russell's charge every chance and he looks up to opening his account in this. Lysino should go well again on the back of a third at Sedgefield, but the likes of Lillioftheballet and Vittachi have plenty to find with the selection and Push Me looks high enough in the weights.
