Verdict

Gordon Elliott saddles a rare Scottish Flat runner here in the shape of the well handicapped MARKHAN who looks ready to strike off this mark with the trainer teaming up with Jamie Spencer for the first time since they landed the Queen Alexandra at Royal Ascot. John Quinn has his team in rude health and it’s interesting to see the headgear swapped to a visor now on Ascot Week after he scored on the AW last time; it now remains to be seen if he can hold his form on the turf. Ravenhoe is a tough sort who looks as though he could pop up again soon having scored on his only previous visit here while Lotara is running well of late and bids to go one better than her last two runs.
  1. Markhan
  2. Ascot Week
  3. Ravenhoe
