Verdict
A low draw is probably a major plus here, although the lack of obvious pace could complicate matters. ESCOBAR has thrived since joining David O'Meara, and looks well handicapped on his latest second to Tigre du Terre at Sandown. Stablemate Firmament could easily pose the biggest danger, and wouldn't be winning out of turn at this level, although there are plenty of others to consider, such as unfortunate Royal Hunt Cup favourite Seniority and Fire Brigade, who has his second start after wind surgery, and caught the eye last time.
