Verdict

Tony Martin's handicappers are worth following at this festival. WHITE ARM is sure to be well supported for this based on his smooth performance in first time blinkers last time. An 8lb rise is not excessive and if staying the extra 6f he will take all the beating. Call It Magic has looked the type to improve for longer trips and, with the man for the big occasion in the saddle, he can give a good account. Arbre De Vie is well treated on his hurdling form and has been unlucky not to complete on his two latest starts. His second to Acapella Bourgeois looks good enough to give him an outstanding chance on these terms.
  1. White Arm
  2. Arbre De Vie
  3. Call It Magic
