Verdict

Cases can be made for several but the most compelling is for top-weight COMMANCHE FALLS. Michael Dods's charge ran a cracker returning from 7 months off when runner-up at Doncaster 5 weeks ago and he's fancied to go one better and notch career success number 9. Many A Star had plenty up his sleeve when opening his account for this yard at Ascot last month so he can provide the biggest threat, ahead of Alligator Alley and Nelson Gay in an ultra-competitive finale.
