Verdict

Dan Skelton bids to win this for a third time in succession and ROCKSTAR RONNIE has leading claims. He would have finished closer to the winner at Kempton if not for a mistake a couple of fences from home and is only 2lb higher than when landing a handicap at the same track earlier. Dino Velvet finished second of four runner at Ayr and still looks a shade high in the weights as does Golden Taipan while Ornua has shown little since switching yards and headgear is applied.
