Formscan - Ruling Dynasty got off the mark at the second time of asking at Newcastle in October at prohibitive odds. However, with his stable under a cloud at present and the fact the son of Night Of Thunder has to give 21lb and upwards to the rest of the field means he is worth opposing. The vote, therefore, goes to KING OF THE PLAINS, who was just denied on his second start at Yarmouth last week and the son of Roaring Lion is taken to go one better. Cosmic Soul is open to improvement, while Governor Of India is exceptionally bred, being out of a Prix de Diane winner like the selection, and has to be respected on his racecourse bow.
