Verdict

Admirable Duque beat Passion Play by four lengths over this trip at Newbury two weeks ago but the runner-up is 6lb better off now and there may not be much to choose between the pair today. FLASHMAN is starting to come down the weights and, dropped in distance and class here, could be the one to beat as the weights are fairly compacted and he is only conceding 11lb to bottom weight Sancho Panza, who has more to do than when winning at Yarmouth. Porcini, Goodwood third Beat Route and hurdler Mohanad may find this an insufficient test of stamina and Silver Samba disappointed last time while Thecornishcowboy is better on the all-weather.
