Verdict

The very consistent My Kingdom is creeping up the weights without winning but he's scored here from higher marks in the past and has to be on the short-list though the widest draw won't help. The veteran Beckemet likes a tight track and soft ground so he's likely to get involved but the sprinter Green Park will be having his first-ever run over this trip on his 109th start. Lucky Numbers is also better known as a sprinter and King Of Eden and Tamareen like faster ground so it's GLENRIDDING who gets the nod. James Given's charge has won 14 races in his career, the majority over this trip. He's not ideally drawn but has dropped to a very fair mark and looked on the way back at Thirsk on Monday.
