In depth

Verdict

Takeroc and Nozic have probably seen better days, though the latter has been thereabouts lately, but KIE is still heading in the right direction as he faced a stiff task at the weights with Tetlami here last time. He may be able to make the most of the 3lb he receives from Newbury second Urgence D'estruval. Wester Ross has disappointed this season but is starting to look well treated and makes more appeal than Lucy's Legend and Miss Tenacious.
