Verdict

Sacre Toi will make a bold bid to go one better than when a hot favourite at Catterick 11 days ago but we fancy ROS CASTLE to get the better of James Ewart's charge here. The top weight just failed to overhaul good yardstick Tahiti Pearl at Newcastle last month and has scope for further improvement. Lucky Sunny may have lost his confidence while Saddle Pack has been well below par this term and Prince Tam reserves his best for Newcastle. Snapping Turtle could be interesting, however, despite a slightly disappointing effort last time following a third at Carlisle.
