Verdict

Former Ascot Gold Cup winner Order Of St George is not averse to being turned over at a short price, but he is the standout in this line-up and it will be a surprise if he fails to collect. He met a stubborn opponent at Ascot in Big Orange, but lost very little in defeat there and, on all known form, holds these rivals. Rekindling, the only 3yo in this field, is next best on form and would still have plenty scope to do better. Winner over C&D last month when beating Wicklow Brave, he looks best of the remainder. Renneti is full of confidence after his Galway win and an interesting contender but may have plenty on to finish ahead of the consistent Twilight Payment.
