Race Verdict

River D'or is respected on the back on an emphatic victory at Fontwell but preference is for BATTLECRY, who was outpaced over 2m4f at Ludlow last month. Although 5lb higher than when scoring at Newbury earlier in the season, he is not fully exposed around marathon distances. Dom D'Orgeval has dropped 1lb below his last winning mark and has place claims along with Royal Kicks, who creeps in at the foot of the weights on a winning mark and should get the trip.

Selection: Battlecry        Danger: River D'or        Alternative: Dom D'Orgeval
