Verdict

RIDDLEOFTHESANDS is hard to oppose. An easy winner at Chepstow during the week, it's difficult to see any of today's opposition preventing a follow-up. Ratify has slipped down the weights and will have come on for a recent third at Stratford. He looks the chief danger unless Kauto The Roc rediscovers the form of his second at Huntingdon in April but the remainder are even harder to fancy.
