Verdict

ENRILO was shaping well before coming down in the Ladbrokes Trophy on return and remains on a competitive mark having finished first past the post in the bet365 Gold Cup at Sandown in April. Commodore has a good record fresh and went well in this last year, while Santini is a fascinating runner switched to a handicap for a new yard.
