At The Races Verdict

KLOUD GATE arrives in search of a hat-trick having won as he has pleased in two starts over timber last month, and a step up in class shouldn't prevent another bold bid. Doux Pretender has the scope to improve his handicap mark back in trip, and the four-timer seeking Cotswold Way could also be ahead of the assessor. Darling Maltaix and Lorcan Williams have struck up a good partnership but Paul Nicholls' charge has been hit with a 12lb rise for his Ascot triumph.

Timeform Verdict

LORD NAPIER is unbeaten in 2 previous outings around 2½m and might be worth siding with after putting in some good late work in the very competitive Betfair Exchange Hurdle over 2m at Ascot last time. Kloud Gate is inexperienced for a race of this nature but has to be feared after hacking up in a couple of small-field handicaps last month. Erick Le Rouge and Cotswold Way are also much respected.
