Race Verdict

STAND TO REASON confirmed his current wellbeing when returning to action with a smooth success at Newbury last month, his second win in succession, and with underfoot conditions again expected to be to his liking, he should be able to defy an 8lb rise in the weights to complete the hat-trick. It is interesting to see Ryan Moore take over in the saddle today and he is fancied to see off recent Doncaster scorer Calaf, another who has plenty of form with cut in the ground. Of the others, the lightly-raced Cool Macavity rates best of the rest with the promise of more to come.

Selection: Stand To Reason        Danger: Calaf        Alternative: Cool Macavity
