Willie Mullins will be going for a record fourth straight victory in this historic handicap on Saturday, and Ireland's Champion Trainer accounts for five of the first eleven in the betting.

M C Muldoon was my NAP of the day on day one of Royal Ascot, where he came up just a nose short of Reshoun in the Ascot Stakes. Since then, Mullins' six-year-old has won a maiden hurdle and Ryan Moore has been booked to ride.

Of Mullins other runners, Foveros and last year's winner, Great White Shark. Yet, fellow National Hunt trainer, Nicky Henderson has also tasted success in this flat handicap on a number of occasions, and I think his representative, BUZZ could be extremely well handicapped.

Buzz was formly trained on the level by Hughie Morrison, and reached a mark of 98 before being sent to Seven Barrows. Having ended his novice hurdles campaign on a mark of 136, Buzz improved to the tune of 19 pounds last season, bolting up in a handicap at Ascot before rounding off his campaign with an excellent runner-up finish in the Grade One Aintree Hurdle.

Henderson's grey now returns to the flat with a mark of 96, some 59-pounds lower than his hurdles mark. This powerful traveller will have no problems regarding trip or ground, and 8-13 is a feather-weight for a horse who's used to carrying top-weight in high-profile National Hunt handicaps.

I'm also going to take a punt on PLATFORM NINETEEN, who's been laid out for a tilt at this handicap by Michael Bell.

Having spent 20 months on the sidelines, Platform Nineteen made a winning return to action at Beverley In July, hacking up by five lengths in a competitive two mile handicap. Two weeks later, Clifford Lee's mount was backed into favouritism for the Goodwood Handicap, and ran a lovely race that day to eventually finish fifth.

Platform Nineteen was last seen running at the Ebor Festival, where he worked his way to the front with two furlongs to travel, only to be passed by the well-backed Arcadian Sunrise and the previous year's winner, Rajinsky. 

Bell's five-year-old was handed a career-best RPR of 97 for that performance, and the handicapper has only upped Platform Nineteen's rating by a pound to 90. That was the third time that Clifford Lee's mount had run up to a mark in the mid-to-high 90s this season, and he can make an impact in this handicap with just 8-7 on his back.
