Southern stables have waltzed off with this valuable prize for the past three years and they look to hold a strong hand again here with the Royal runner LEARN BY HEART
narrowly preferred to the ever-improving Old Persian
. The former bumped into a real improver last time and his slightly better draw gives him the edge here. Another southern runner Dark Acclaim
looks to have a good chance although he will have to reverse form with the suggestion. The North look to have a slightly below-par team although the Karl Burke trained Unwritten
is a fascinating contender after his 9L romp last time from a yard that know the time of day with their juveniles.
