Verdict

A few in with a shout but CHTI BALKO shaped as if he'd be better for the run when third at Wetherby 5 weeks ago. He's dropped to a very good mark and, under optimum conditions, gets the vote to take this contest for a second year in succession. Green Book remains capable of better so he heads the dangers on handicap bow after his recent runner-up effort over C&D, ahead of Bari Breeze.
