Verdict

Dermot Weld has won this for the past three years and Marty's Magic will have been earmarked for this for some time. Still a maiden on the Flat with a rating of 76, he has to be respected but MARCHESE MARCONI looks to have the better chance. Aidan O'Brien's charge has already had a run on the Flat here this week and though well beaten had been going well previously. He's had a run over timber and that experience should give him the edge. Vote Of Confidence did well on the Flat and though well beaten on his hurdling bow the very heavy ground would have been all against him. Heartbreak City, a winner on the Flat in France, is taking his time to show form for Tony Martin but looks best of the remainder.
