Verdict

IGUAZU FALLS can land the finale at the main expense of Zaahid, Atlantic Story and Laa Rayb. Once again we have another huge field and finding the winner will be a tricky task. A recent winner at Epsom, the selection impressed with the way he travelled before powering clear. He can take a pull but the strong pace here should suit and any rain before the race should be firmly in this son of Pivotal's favour. Zaahid seems to excel in these big-field handicaps and a 6lb rise in the weights doesn't look too harsh. He has what could be a good low draw and looks the pick of Barry Hills' trio who are interestingly handicapped side by side. Atlantic Story has been a star on the all-weather and whilst not as good on the turf, he should be considered along with fellow Northern raider Laa Rayb. He is as game as they come and the soft ground last time he ran was completely against him so that run can be scratched. Our Faye has more on her plate today, whilst King's Bastion has held his form well and needs consideration at a bigger price. Docofthebay would be interesting if turned out quickly after a run in the Royal Hunt Cup, whilst Berbice and Express Wish would both be major players if staying the extra furlong today. Not an easy way to end the day, but Iguazu Falls is taken to lead them home.
