Verdict

Cotillion is relatively unexposed over timber and could have more to offer while it will be a surprise if Alan King can't find a race for useful Flat performer Kings Troop off his current mark. Sentimentaljourney came good when upped in trip at Ffos Las last time but doesn't look an easy ride so the one to beat in this opener may be ALCALDE. Only 3lb higher than when a close-up second at Newbury in March, John Berry's charge found the ground too fast on his reappearance at Cheltenham but will have no excuses on that score here and is worth another chance.
