Verdict
This does look a lot more competitive than the first division and a few have chances. Grand Inquisitor , with the cheekpieces reapplied, makes plenty of appeal as these conditions should be ideal for him and his latest piece of form looks all the better after the winner went in again at Sandown earlier in the month. But he does find pushing his head in front hard, and on that, KINGOFTHECOTSWOLDS looks a better option. He is really getting the hang of things now and if taking another step forward on his latest Huntington effort, looks the one to beat here. Sam Twiston-Davies taking over from a claimer can only help his chance too. Le Ligirien can do better if settling.
