Verdict

HI NOTE was such an easy winner at Stratford last week that it's no surprise Sheena West turns her out again quickly here under a penalty. She gets the nod as she may still be heading in the right direction, though will have to be at her best to deny the also-improving Coffee a hat-trick after wins at Worcester and Uttoxeter. Smokey Oakey has been running on the Flat while Violets Boy won easily at Hereford in August but Tony Star, Joseph Lister, Specialagent Alfie and San Telm are up against in-form rivals on returning from a break and Reaction is only a plater nowadays.
