Verdict

The Ascot handicap in which ROYAUME UNI finished second to Herbiers a month ago could be the key piece of form here, with Gary Moore's charge taken to reverse the placings this time. There's clearly plenty of depth to this, with On To Victory, Lilly Pedlar and Rockstar Ronnie just a trio of potential threats.

  1. ROYAUME UNI (IRE)
  2. HERBIERS (FR)
  3. ON TO VICTORY
