Verdict

HARBOUR COURT won over this trip at this meeting last year and started favourite for last month's Foxhunter Chase at The Festival. He only finished fifth but had some very smart performers in front of him and a few behind, including recent winner Foundry Square - he looks the class act in this. Penmore Hill's last two runs under Rules have been over shorter but he stays this far and won by 15 lengths at the North Warwickshire earlier this month. Alskamatic's run in the previous race will be a pointer to the chances of Chosen Milan but Getmeoutthedoldrums stays well and could figure if they go a decent gallop.
