Verdict

It will be interesting to see if young Harry Derham can get a tune out of the hitherto disappointing Rock Of Deauville but a safer bet may be SENTIMENTALJOURNEY. The four-year-old stays well but needs plenty of urging and is reunited with AP McCoy here after failing to catch Enfant Du Lune under a conditional at Sandown earlier this month. Beside The Fire won over 2m1f at Taunton two weeks ago but this looks tougher, while Cheltenham fifth Psi is probably high enough in the weights now. Prince Of Denial, who won at Market Rasen after a break, and bottom weight Promised Wings, may prove the pick of the remainder.
