In depth

Verdict

Potterath has won here and over the trip though he's 10lb higher than his last winning mark. Halifax is still a maiden after a dozen starts and has yet to prove he stays this far. Chloe's Court isn't a prolific winner but stays the trip and isn't badly handicapped but the vote goes to PRINCE DES FICHAUX. Sam Thomas' charge showed plenty of potential in the spring and was well supported for his reappearance in a Bangor handicap where he led for a long way before blowing up. Itacare was in good form on quick ground in the spring and found soft going against him at Kempton last month.
