Verdict

Lots of these have question marks against them so this looks a good opportunity for EVENT OF SIVOLA to open his account for Mark Walford after a run of good efforts in the frame. Gold Runner is unexposed over fences and has the potential to have a big say if his stamina holds out over this much longer trip, while Epsom Des Mottes is another who is weighted to go well if on song.
