Verdict

Paddy Power Gold Cup winner COOLE CODY enhanced his excellent record here when fourth in the Plate at the Festival last month and should make another bold bid off the same mark back in calmer waters. Conditions will suit the in-form Romain de Senam and he rates the main threat ahead of The Big Bite, who was set to win at Newbury before hanging badly left up the run-in.

  1. COOLE CODY (IRE)
  2. ROMAIN DE SENAM (FR)
  3. THE BIG BITE (IRE)
