Verdict

VIVE LE ROI is in better heart than this season's form figures suggest, and given he was runner-up in the 2020 Lanzarote from 9 lb higher, he makes plenty of appeal from a handicapping perspective. Nightboattoclyro arrives in pursuit of a 4-timer so it would be madness to omit him from calculations.
