Verdict

Florencio bids for a course and distance double having beaten Under Siege here last month but the latter is weighted to reverse running. Swiss Cross is capable when in the mood and won off today’s mark at Lingfield in December while Bouclier scored off a higher mark on the Turf last year and posted a better effort last time. ARTSCAPE was unfancied in the betting when turning over an odds-on favourite in a maiden race here. There should be more to come from Dean Ivory’s charge now handicapping and he gets the vote.
