Verdict

An open finale in which plenty can be considered, namely the likes of Paint The Dream, Putting Green and the Carlisle winner Amberose who would be suited by any overnight/mid-afternoon rain (forecast is mixed). The lightly-raced Rizzardo will also be popular amongst punters after an eye-catching run at Market Rasen (2m7f), and with Sam Twiston-Davies taking over in the saddle. Therefore, in pursuit of some value a realistic alternative is the Richard Hobson-trained DEFI SACRE who shaped better than the bare finishing positions over this trip at Uttoxeter 26-days ago.
  1. Defi Sacre
  2. Rizzardo
  3. Amberose
