This looks on the sharp side for Overpriced and Short Takes while Next Hight will need to have improved over the summer to figure in the grade. Captain Brown is hard to catch right while the years appear to be catching up with Knight In Purple judged on recent efforts, though he's well treated if recapturing his best. OLIVER'S GOLD (NAP) beat a decent sort at Uttoxeter in June and was out of his depth next time. He has much stronger claims here and had a pipe-opener on the Flat last month. Tamarillo Grove looks high enough in the weights now but Morning With Ivan could have more to offer this winter, though may prefer softer ground.
