Verdict

Stone Of Destiny finished well ahead of Abel Handy when running a massive race at 50/1 in the Commonwealth Cup at Ascot. But he takes on older sprinters today while Muthmir finished in front of Mr Lupton when runner-up at Sandown last time but is penalised for an earlier Listed success at Haydock when narrowly beating Alpha Delphini. The latter re-opposes on better terms and should go very close but TAKE COVER (NAP) won this in 2014 and was successful again in last year’s renewal. He finished ahead of El Astronaute when placed at Beverley on only his second start of the year and David Griffiths’ charge should be spot on today. A Momentofmadness ran well at Chantilly last time but this is tougher.
