Verdict

King Of The Romans steps up in trip for his comeback but last year's best effort came in heavy going at Galway. BEHLAYAN makes more appeal as he's sure to improve over middle-distances after running well enough over a mile here on his recent debut. John Oxx's colt gets the vote ahead of Zenetti, another expected to finish closer after four starts over shorter trips last year. Tuscan Light's breeding suggests she'll be at home over the distance and the newcomer makes more appeal than both Erin's Grace and Time For Action.
