Verdict

Already successful at Chelmsford and Sandown this year, top weight shouldn’t prevent another bold bid from Fox Leicester. Emirates Knight won over the trip at Thirsk before finding1m2f too far at Sandown. Archaeology won here last month but couldn’t reproduce that effort next time at Carlisle. GLOBAL GIFT improved to score again at Haydock after getting off the mark at Carlisle. He may well complete the hat-trick if progressing again, though Ginger Fox produced a career-best over track and trip last time in first-time cheekpieces. House Of Kings has a bit to prove at present and Prince Of Harts was engaged yesterday at Nottingham.
