Verdict

Plenty can be given a chance in an open contest. RELKADAM ran well enough at Wetherby last time to think that he's got more to come, and the drop in the weights from the handicapper can only be a good thing. He gets the verdict over Drums Of War, another that should be winning races this season and the fact he handles these conditions well can only be in his favour. Ex S'elance keeps progressing, albeit slowly, and may do so again, and money for Culmination would need noting too.
