Verdict

SCEAU ROYAL is favoured by these weights and with no Altior in opposition this time is taken to go one better than last year and add to his two smart hurdling wins earlier this season. Greaneteen is an emerging force among the best two-milers so is much respected on the back of his Tingle Creek second, with his stable companion Magic Saint appealing as the pick of the remainder.
