Verdict

There's plenty in here that need a look in the market - it's the sort of race that something will improve plenty for going into handicaps - but the safest option at this stage looks to be BLETCHLEY CASTLE, who never really looked in any danger of defeat at Fontwell and stays this longer trip. Expect another bold show from the front. Oskar Denarius has run better than his form figures suggest and if the tongue tie has the desired effect, may go close. Money for Buy Me Out would be significant.
