Verdict

Spinning Waters prevailed by only a neck when getting the better of Orbital Orchid over C&D last month. They're difficult to separate here and fifth-placed Miles Of Sunshine could turn the tables on both as he re-opposes on better terms. Blazing Buck won at Ayr recently but needs slower ground to show his best though Stormy Morning has claims on his latest third at Warwick. However, SALONTYRE has improved over hurdles this year and wasn't disgraced in much better company at Ascot on his return to the Flat. He looks capable of repeating last year's success in this race despite a 7lb higher mark.
