Verdict

A cracking renewal of the Portland Handicap and preference is for A MOMENTOFMADNESS who won this race in 2018 and found only the subsequent July Cup winner Oxted too good 12 months ago. He has come down in the weights since and will take the beating if building on his encouraging third at Goodwood last time. Meraas, Soldier's Minute and Justanotherbottle are also well worth considering.

  1. A MOMENTOFMADNESS
  2. MERAAS
  3. SOLDIER'S MINUTE
