Verdict

The biggest field of the day but an inexperienced one and there should not be too many involved at the business end. The vote goes to top weight FIN AND GAME, who showed that he handles testing ground when a clear winner at Wetherby. He looks very promising and may well be able to defy a penalty. Article Fifty is entitled to be short-listed after some decent efforts so far and another win for him would be no great surprise, while Doc Carver has also shown promise and may well be the one to chase them home. Both Trigger Nichol and Duke Of Kilcorral could show improvement this time.
