Verdict

LYCIDAS has the best form in this and an official rating of 125 would make him the one to beat. He had Paper Roses behind when chasing home Reivers Lad at Kelso and the Whillans' mare is weighted to turn the tables here. However, on this faster ground, LYCIDAS may prove to be the stronger proposition. Slanelough hails from a yard that are going well and he does not need to improve much to be a factor.
