In depth

Verdict

Nafaath was third in the Ascot Stakes in June but his recent form over hurdles is woeful. Award Winner won at Wincanton and Fontwell, beating Inner Steel on the latter occasion, in October but was tailed off from his new mark at Taunton last time while Who Owns Me showed very little on his return at Plumpton when behind PROMISED WINGS. Chris Gordon's gelding won over a shorter trip here a year ago and may be poised for a return to winning ways as Finnegan Paddy and Tothemoonandback have become disappointing and Dom Lukka failed to pick up at Sedgefield last month.
