Verdict

All But Grey's run in the opener will be a pointer to the chances of RUGGED JACK but it's about time that Victor Dartnall's charge was winning one of these. Revaader's consistency can't be faulted and she deserves a change of luck. It would be no surprise to see Mark Gillard's mare in the winner's enclosure either while the yard also run the potentially well-treated Lady Bridget. Florida Quays may be the pick of the remainder as Milor De La Borie has a long absence to overcome.
