Verdict

Only one three-year-old has won this since the turn of the century and it’s a race generally dominated by those aged four or five. Heaven's Guest started in stall two when winning two years ago but only one other winner has had a single-figure draw in the last 10 years. Remarkable made late headway when sixth in the Royal Hunt Cup here last month but, like eventual ninth Fastnet Tempest, may not be suited by dropping back a furlong. JOHNNY BARNES was a place behind stablemate Remarkable at Newbury last week but appears to be running into form and may have the better draw here. A former Group 3 winner on an easy surface, he gets a tentative vote but there are dangers aplenty including the fast-improving Viscount Barfield and Makzeem, who has been in good form at Newmarket recently. Above The Rest landed the Bunbury Cup at HQ but looks held by a few of these on earlier form.
