Verdict

MISTAMEL has been raised 6lb for winning at Bath but drops in class and can reverse earlier running with Chepstow winner Idle Talker on today's better terms. Roy Rocket has been thereabouts since scoring over track and trip in June and should be in the mix once again but Vaguely Spanish has something to prove over this longer trip. The veteran Foxhaven continues to slide down the weights but last won in 2013 and the remaining pair have yet to win a race of any sort.
