In depth

Verdict

Call It On has hinted at ability in four starts over fences to date. He's also fit from the Flat while Civil Unrest looks the type to better over the larger obstacles and should find a small race this winter. D'Gigi certainly has to go on the short-list as she recorded her sole success over hurdles at this track and over the trip, though she hasn't raced since falling at Aintree in May. MENTALIST is a rare runner here for Venetia Williams and made a very satisfactory start over fences when runner-up at Bangor 10 days ago. He'll have learned from that and, getting all the allowances again, the four-year-old should go one better here.
