Verdict

TRAVAIL D'ORFEVRE signalled he's ready to add to his bumper success when a promising second over 2m here last month and can take full advantage of a lenient opening handicap mark with this longer trip sure to suit him. Be The Difference, bidding for a third win of the season, looks the one to chase home Nick Alexander's improver. Bullion Boss appeals as the pick of the remainder.

  1. TRAVAIL D'ORFEVRE (FR)
