Verdict

While the race has lost it's x-factor courtesy of Altior's withdrawal yesterday, it has opened up the opportunity for CAPELAND to open his graded account. The seven-year-old romped home by 12L at Ascot which has balloted him out of handicaps and could have the natural progression needed to take this contest. The form standard is set by Grade 1 winners Sceau Royal and Duc De Genievres, but both arrive here off the back of torrid efforts, while the ground is unlikely to be in favour for the former horse and last season's novice form is windy enough regarding the latter.
