Verdict

Gordon Elliott and AP McCoy are fancied to complete a quick double here with ESPORAO. Judged on his comfortable win at Downpatrick last month, the five-year-old is still on an upward curve and gets 14lb from Tony Martin's Redera, though the latter's amateur rider reduces his burden by 7lb. He is also dropped in class after tackling a Galway handicap in July. Stags Leap could be interesting as he's been in decent form on the Flat lately but Jet Master needs to improve on his latest C&D third to figure in this.
