Verdict

An interesting contest in that it pits last-time winner Midnight Walk against the hat-trick seeking TOO MANY DIAMONDS and preference is for the latter. Dan Skelton's gelding has sluiced up in two races in recent days and can add a third here despite his 14lb penalty. Midnight Walk has been put up by 10lb for his easy success and may still be competitive, but he concedes more than a stone to his chief rival. Blue April looks best of the remainder.
  1. Too Many Diamonds
  2. Midnight Walk
  3. Blue April
