Forecast

Kloud Gate (7/2), Lord Napier (7/1), Mellow Ben (8/1), Erick Le Rouge (8/1), Doux Pretender (8/1), Star Of Lanka (9/1), Cotswold Way (9/1), Darling Maltaix (10/1), Solomon Grey (12/1), And The New (12/1), Big Time Dancer (16/1), Canyon City (16/1), Sleep Easy (20/1), Milrow (33/1), Theatrebar (50/1)

Verdict
Gary Moore is quite familiar with landing big handicaps and the ante-post gamble on KLOUD GATE looks well founded after this former French flat runner fairly bolted up at Leicester and Doncaster leaving the impression that even another hike up the weights might not stop him. Paul Nicholls has won three of the last 10 runnings and in hugely impressive Ascot scorer Darling Maltaix he has a live chance once again. Also high on the shortlist is Lord Napier who has been crying out for this step up in trip and one suspects he may just have been laid out for this.
  1. Kloud Gate
  2. Darling Maltaix
  3. Lord Napier
