Verdict

Most of these arrive badly out of form but Blue Sea Of Ibrox has finished a bit closer since returning to action and may get involved. Mrs Robinson reverts to hurdling after a fourth over fences, though she's yet to win a race while Earcomesthedream has failed to figure in three subsequent starts since winning at Chepstow. Sapphire Rouge scored at Fontwell in May and is only 3lb higher but it's hard to get away from recent Ludlow winner, KINGS APOLLO, who is fancied to follow up in this company despite a hike in the weights.
