In depth

Verdict

Sannibel has disappointed since returning from a layoff and Madame Kintyre's best run off the year came on the Turf. Athwaab pops up in these events occasionally as when scoring at 16/1 over C&D in September and Loyal Royal is capable at this level though he hasn't won since April 2011. SILVEE has scored in better company twice this season and now back on a winning mark, it could be the turn of John Bridger's mare once again. Onceuponatime returns from a long absence but races off a fair mark if retaining his ability.
