Verdict

Colorus, Spic 'n Span and Ridley Didley are all recent winners over C&D and all three like to race prominently. There's a chance they could cut each others throats in front here and that would play into the hands of LORD OF THE REINS. James Given's charge is now rated 12lb lower than his last win and his recent close-up second at Kempton suggests he's ready to take advantage. Rievaulx World has a bit to find on his recent running, but Tsar Bomba may be capable of better on his seasonal reappearance.
