Verdict

This race revolves around RIVELLINO, who will be extremely hard to beat if the seven-year-old can run to anywhere near his official rating of 94. The worry has to be his run at Naas earlier in the month but he can still outclass his rivals here. Strategic Heights has shown his best form at this track and he could prove to be a solid each-way pick against the selection, while Complicit and Master Bond are others to note.

Verdict

RIVELLINO probably needed the run on his first outing for this yard 12 days ago and will prove hard to beat if coming back to the form he showed for Karl Burke. Strategic Heights and Complicit are feared most.
