Verdict

Ryan Moore partners Good Luck Fox, who won nicely at Windsor recently when beating the re-opposing Tomshalfbrother but it remains to be seen how the former fares under a penalty. MUTAWAFFER never figured in the Windsor Castle at Ascot last time though had finished clear of three subsequent winners when scoring at Goodwood earlier and it’s Charlie Hills’ colt that gets another chance today. The others with experience make no appeal but Royal Dynasty is related to a couple of winners and is a newcomer to note.
