Chemistry Master should be a leading contender here on past form but does struggle to get his head in front. Bernard Llewellyn's pair, James Pollard and Taste The Wine, have claims while Halifax finally showed a glimpse of his best form when only beaten half-a-length at Stratford last month, though that was over a much longer trip. REVERB has had a break but fitness is unlikely to be an issue and he has every chance of getting off the mark today on placed efforts here and at Sandown before the turn of year. Tenby Jewel, second over track and trip last month, looks best of the rest.
