In depth

Verdict

RYDAN started the year rated 9lb higher and after finishing third over 1m6f at Salisbury last month, Gary Moore’s charge may prove good enough. Archimento has won twice at Brighton this year including his latest start over 1m4f while Orin Swift won over the same distance at Newbury back in May. Gravity Wave, Ardamir and Navajo Star have all been thereabouts over 2m recently and the latter finished in front of Roc Astrale when second here last month.
