Verdict

Le Toreador has been below par so far this year but has every chance if back to his best. Ryan Moore's presence on Whozthecat suggests he's expected to go one better than his latest second at Thirsk and he may well do so, but it could pay to stick with the hat-trick-seeking CARDINAL. He's been raised only 3lb for his latest victory at Sandown and is perfectly at home with cut in the ground. Wolverhampton winner Showboating never threatened when third on the Rowley course here last time and Swendab's four wins have been recorded on good to firm going.
