Verdict

Capton completed a double last year but has looked high enough in the weights since while Rotherwick will need a career-best today upped 5lb for winning at Windsor recently. Know Your Limit has something to prove in this grade and Breath Caught is also upped in class as well as distance. Chief Ironside has strong claims having placed in a competitive handicap at Newbury but PROPOSED ran well for third over track and trip on his return to this country and first start for Luke McJannet. He finished in front of Brorocco on that occasion and may just be good enough having been rated 12lb higher when racing at Meydan at the start of the year.
