Verdict

A muddling race with the presence of the veteran Diamond King giving the handicap a very lopsided look. He is the undoubted class act in this race as a former winner of the Coral Cup (2016) at the Cheltenham Festival. However, he's also potentially extremely vulnerable over 2m around a sharp track and without the benefit of a run since April 2018. Therefore, the logical option is the Tim Vaughan-trained PRINCE CHARMIN' who has warmed up for this race with a couple of spins on the AW at Lingfield and Wolverhampton. Kelso regular Martila is best of the remainder.
  1. Prince Charmin'
  2. Martila
