Verdict

Quite a few of these are well matched on last week's run over a mile-and-a-half, and it will pay to side with those more likely to be suited by this longer trip. Black Label was just a length off winning that contest and is one that has no worries going this far, though his strike rate is poor. Ard Na Carraig and Repare Mon are other that can be taken from that race and give claims here. Magnetic Force has been going well over timber and merits a look with a noted jockey booking while Our Rachael might go well for the Cork Derby-winning trainer/jockey team. But the nod goes to WOOD BREIZH, representing the champion jumps trainer. As evidenced at Royal Ascot this week, anything he sends to the Flat must be respected and this seven-year-old has a great chance off this rating on his old form in this sphere.
  1. Wood Breizh
  2. Magnetic Force
  3. Black Label
