Verdict

RED TORNADO has performed with credit on his two most recent visits to this venue and he makes most appeal in a fairly uncompetitive affair for the grade. Wemyss Point won this race in 2018 and he's been in reasonable form on the all-weather so has to be considered. Warranty is of interest with Ben Curtis booked to ride on his first run on the Flat for this yard.
