Verdict

There are three previous course winners in this with recent scorer Templehills probably the pick ahead of Fanzio and Romain De Senam at the weights. Aintree My Dream did really well to get within a neck of a race-fit Imperial Presence at Fontwell and has every chance of going one better but was unplaced in this last year and finished behind Town Parks. We just prefer DUSTIN DES MOTTES as the latter was conceding 10lb to winner Flaminger at Fontwell and, though only 1-9 over fences, never seems to run a bad race. Mystical Clouds has switched stables since winning at Kempton in February.
