Verdict

Stamina will be at a premium in this and BOBBIE MAGERN shouldn't be found wanting in that department, finishing second over 3m3f at Fontwell last month. A visor is fitted here and he could be the one to beat if it has the desired effect. Future Dominion has been knocking on the door and is closely matched with the selection on a line through Fontwell winner Overlay while Free Falling was second at Worcester in October, though might prefer better ground. Earcomesthedream is a regular here and by no means badly treated - it would be no surprise to see Peter Pritchard's nine-year-old in the firing-line in a race of this nature.
