Verdict

This looks on the sharp side for Taste The Wine but the trip won't be a problem for Cabuchon if connections decide to turn the gelding out quickly following his run at Brighton on Friday. BERNISDALE hasn't run on the Flat since May but won over hurdles in June so should lack nothing in fitness. The latter has won twice on this figure-of-eight track so, as she has an experienced amateur on board, could be the one to beat today ahead of Hamble and Sutton Sid.
