Verdict

Nicky Henderson won this with a five-year-old last season and his DRAGON D'ESTRUVAL is given another chance here after travelling well here on return before not seeming to last the 3m trip. Unblinking is rated the biggest danger with Nigel Twiston-Davies horse looking a fast improver based on evidence this season and also to be respected is Coeur Blimey who was most impressive last time out.
  1. Dragon D'Estruval
  2. Unblinking
  3. Coeur Blimey
