Verdict

A tricky race for punters with Skylancer, a good winner at Wetherby this time last year, but having done nothing since, seemingly well treated on ground that suits, though preference is for TRUMPSTOO. Richard Fahey's charge was also a Wetherby winner 12 months ago and is proven over this trip and on the ground. The form of that Wetherby success suggests he should have the measure of Monsieur Jordan, while Ascendant looks a big danger from a yard going well and with conditions of no concern. Worth A King's might find this tough enough on his handicap debut from a mark of 120 and a bigger threat may be feather weight Zahara Joy, who comes here in cracking form but tackles stronger opposition.
