Game sort who always runs his race on both turf and the AW. Winner here last month over 6f off a 1lb lower mark. Should make his presence felt once again.

Busy summer appears not to be doing the Rock Of Gibraltar gelding any harm with the five-year-old winning two of his last three starts. Beaten 2¼L here over 6f last month but capable of running a big race.

Betting

Forecast

Royal Navy Warship (15/8), Gottardo (6/1), Geological (9/1), Rapid Reaction (10/1), Danz Gift (10/1), My Good Brother (10/1), Early Call (11/1), First Bombardment (11/1), Mercury (11/1), Pillar (12/1), Zig Zag Zyggy (14/1), Fille Du Septembre (16/1), Abstraction (20/1), Ty Rock Brandy (33/1), Menelik (33/1), Coto (33/1), Lapilli (33/1)

Verdict

Bar any trouble in running the Aidan O'Brien War Front colt ROYAL NAVY WARSHIP should add to his win here last month by landing the opener fighting off the possible challenge of C&D winners, Danz Gift and My Good Brother. Michael Mulvany's Early Call won well at Down Royal earlier this month and can go well once again here.
