Verdict

CELESTIAL FORCE has become an admirable - if not frustrating horse - at this level in recent times but could have found a good opportunity to get back on the winning keel. He ran another great race in defeat when not ridden to his strengths and with the pace likely to be strong he looks set to go well once again. River Icon comes into this off the back of a career-best over two miles and should run creditably again but the trip is a slight concern, while the likes of Teodora De Vega and Caravan Of Hope could have more improvement in them over this trip.
