In depth

Verdict

The mare TOUBEERA has a lot of weight to carry but is probably still the form pick and more likely to see out this trip on the ground that Sky Watch, who gives the impression a return to 2m wouldn't be a bad thing. Howlongisafoot got a lot closer to Warden Hill at Doncaster than he did at Kempton and is going the right way while Kudu Shine wasn't disgraced behind Royal Player, due to run in the opener, over course and distance on his debut under Rules and looks the pick of the remainder.
