Race Verdict

ROYAL MILE receives a decent amount of weight from all rivals and is awarded the vote in the hope that his last two runs can be discarded. Prior to those disappointments, he went down narrowly to Tipsy Indian at Sedgefield, form that would more than good enough if replicated here, and Paddy Brennan is a good booking. The busy Speedy Directa is an interesting chasing newcomer and will be a massive danger if taking to fences. Amroth Bay looks next best.

Selection: Royal Mile        Danger: Speedy Directa        Alternative: Amroth Bay
