Verdict

Aussie Valentine is on a hat-trick and though 4lb higher than his latest victory at Tipperary he's lower than when scoring on this track three years ago. LUCIUS TIBERIUS had been racing in strong company before a smooth victory in a Curragh handicap over this trip and looks the type to follow. He can defy an 8lb rise though Massif Central went very close to landing a premier handicap on the latter track and looks certain to make another bold bid. The King has only had four runs and there was much to like about his narrow defeat in a tough handicap at Navan and there's more to come. Mawaany has been in excellent form since scoring at the Curragh in May but is now 13lb higher.
