Verdict

A cracking renewal of this famous race in which Sir Michael Stoute's Shraaoh has to go on any shortlist despite a slightly underwhelming reappearance at Epsom. Irish raider Moonmeister, Carntop and recent winners Big Country and Toulson also have plenty to recommend them but the answer be lurking at the bottom of the handicap in the shape of BROROCCO. Andrew Balding's gelding caught the eye in defeat at Epsom last time out and looks sure to improve over this longer trip.
  1. Brorocco
  2. Big Country
  3. Shraaoh
