Verdict

SPUTNIK PLANUM is the unexposed one in the field and he could hardly have been much more impressive when winning at Doncaster last time out. A 7lb rise could underestimate his ability and he's the one to beat in what is a competitive race. Epaulement is a threat if he handles these conditions but Frankuus can be considered the main danger after hinting at a return to form at Ripon last time out.
