Verdict

A fascinating renewal despite the small field and given that there was rain in the area on Friday, it might be worth siding with 2018's Gold Cup winner NATIVE RIVER. He didn't really get his conditions last season but there's no sign he's lost any of his ability and he could be the one to beat. Black Corton has race fitness on his side but it will be a tough ask to give weight away to both the selection and Might Bite who could improve for the fitting of first-time cheekpieces.
