Verdict

BENNYS KING proved better than ever when winning a similar event here 5 weeks ago and that form is backed up by the timefigure, so he's taken to defy a 7 lb rise. Espoir de Guye was disappointing here last time but is worth another chance given his overall profile and may emerge as the biggest threat, with Dashel Drasher and Good Boy Bobby other likely dangers.

  1. BENNYS KING (IRE)
  2. ESPOIR DE GUYE (FR)
  3. DASHEL DRASHER
