Verdict

Take Of Shoc's may have been flattered by his margin of victory at Ffos Las last month but is clearly in good form. Batu Ferringhi looks harshly treated on his chasing bow, however, while Fair Bramble needs to improve on what he's shown so far. Suerte Al Salto looked useful when beating Prospect Wells at Fontwell in May but he's been a bit disappointing in two runs this autumn. GEORGE NYMPTON won this last year off a higher mark and it looks as though he's been targeted at the race again. He gets the nod, though Sublime Talent has also dropped to a favourable mark and shouldn't be far away.
