Verdict

A race where shocks are commonplace, with only one outright favourite winning in the last decade and an average winning SP of 15½-1. If there is to be another today, then ELUSIVE HEIGHTS may be capable of providing it. Roger Fell is enjoying his best ever season, and this five-year-old arrives looking well handicapped and has a decent draw. Trip and ground suit, and he could be worth chancing. Stablemate Zodiakos would go close if at his best, while Mikmak, Mon Beau Visage, Seduce Me and Areen Heart could all show up well. No three-year-old has won this since 2010, but Borodin is a very interesting runner.
