In depth

Verdict

Toga Tiger showed progressive form during the summer when landing a hat-trick at Brighton but he's having his first start since July and others are preferred. Mr Knightley has every chance as he chases his own treble after a couple of wins at Kempton while seven time C&D winner Smalljohn can never be discounted at this track. Fred Willettts is on a favourable mark compared to his best form but so is AZRAEL and the latter gets the nod. A runner-up over C&D last time, Alan McCabe's charge finally looks set for a return to winning ways.
