In depth

Verdict

ALPINE PEAK finished less than a length behind Rusper at Lingfield three weeks ago. The latter is penalised for that success so Roger Varian’s colt has obvious claims of reversing the form and coming out best. Mr Reckless passed the post in fourth here last time having met trouble in-running but was disqualified when his rider failed to weigh-in while Winds Of Fire, Holy Heart and Elapidae are all newcomers to note.
