Verdict

No recent winning form to go on though Accompanist is back on the same mark as when scoring here in August. However, BENSOON makes more appeal as he's been threatening to lose his maiden tag over track and trip of late with a couple of good efforts and has the beating of Noverre Princess, Onslow and Rhiannon on recent running. Mountain Woman is lightly-raced and open to improvement on her Polytrack debut and Daytime Dreamer has place claims along with Whiteside.
