Verdict

The Gordon Elliott yard have a solid record with their Flat runners at this meeting in the last four years and the five-year-old, TAKE A TURN can make the most of his weight advantage to land the spoils here. The gelding can outsmart close rivals, Diamond Hill for the Willie Mullins yard, Hot Beat for last years winning stable and the Denis Hogan-trained, Kerosin who is better than his last run at Royal Ascot suggests.
  1. Take A Turn
