Verdict

Big City represents last year’s winning yard having won over 6f in heavy going at Nottingham last time. This is a different test for the Godolphin colt and third-placed Mensen Ernst re-opposes on better terms today. World Title came good at Beverley with a narrow-margin success but GOVERNOR OF PUNJAB made all to win over today’s trip at Chelmsford recently and gets the vote to defy a penalty given the runner-up has subsequently won. Dorset Blue was placed over 6f at Lingfield earlier but ran poorly at Newmarket on his latest start.
