Verdict

Petit Robin was raised 6lb after winning at Ascot but Nicky Henderson combats that by putting up a 7lb claimer with Barry Geraghty taking the ride on Rebecca Curtis' Monte Cavallo. STARLUCK was only sixth in that Ascot race but wasn't far behind having being checked on the turn for home. The grey will strip fitter here and can have his revenge as the stiffer finish here should play to his strengths. Ifandbutwhynot has improved this season and should make a bold bid to complete the hat-trick while Dolatulo will probably be thereabouts again. Into Wain has been running on the all-weather and is preferred to Rowan Tiger and Swampfire of the remainder.
