Verdict

Hard not to see this being run at a good gallop which could well play firmly into the hands of top-weight HITMAN. Paul Nicholls' 6-y-o hasn't always looked the stoutest of finishers but it was hard to crab his second behind Fakir d'Oudairies in Grade 1 company here in April and this could well be his day on the back of a wind op. Last year's Manifesto winner Millers Bank should also find this run to suit and is feared, along with Do Your Job who impressed when scoring at Ayr in the spring.

  1. HITMAN (FR)
  2. MILLERS BANK
  3. DO YOUR JOB (IRE)
