In depth

Verdict

A winner at Ascot over a year ago now, Ivor's King would have preferred faster ground on his comeback. Tolkeins Tango is another who may struggle for his best on this surface after scoring in good to soft at Chepstow recently but the underfoot conditions are no problem for BINCOMBE (NAP) despite his latest win coming on a fast surface at Aintree. Philip Hobbs' charge is upped only 3lb for that success and is preferred to Paddy The Stout, though the latter won at Kempton early this year off a similar mark and should go well along with Umberto D'Olivate.
