The first race of the day on ITV is the big handicap of the day - the Caspian Caviar Gold Cup, and the field is so big we have had to nail it down to two selections; the current favourite Rather Be, and Robert Walford's Mr Medic.
Starting with Rather Be - trained by Champion Trainer Nicky Henderson, he ran an almighty race here in the Close Brothers at the Festival earlier this year, before being brought down on his return when going really well.
If avoiding traffic problems, he will surely be in with a major shout, receiving weight from both Frodon and BetVictor Gold Cup winner Baron Alco.
Mr Medic on-the-other-hand put in an extremely fluent round of jumping around Ascot three weeks ago on his first start stepping up in trip.
He is up 9lb as a result but looks mightily progressive, and not to be ignored here whatsoever.
