In depth

Verdict

SONKO is comfortably the pick on official ratings and, though beaten a long way at Chester last time, it was only June when he finished runner-up in a Class 3 handicap off 85. He's won three from five on the all-weather and looks better than a plater so gets the call. Clubland's only success to date came on Fibresand at Southwell in August and he's run poorly in his two recent starts while Airborne Again hasn't come up to scratch since scoring at Salisbury last May and has been well beaten on both Polytrack starts. First Fast Now looks best of the remainder.
