Verdict

COMPETITION was only beaten a nose on his first Flat start for this handler at Yarmouth last week and is backed to go one better from the same mark, having clearly benefited for a recent wind operation. C&D winner London Glory is 2lb lower than when scoring here last season and has to be respected, with the consistent Royal Cosmic another who looks well handicapped, just 1lb higher than the second of two victories in similar contests last term.

Verdict

COMPETITION was pulled up over hurdles on debut for this yard but bounced back to form returned to the Flat when going close at Yarmouth last week and he's one to be interested in at this level. Royal Cosmic may emerge as the biggest threat ahead of London Glory.
