In depth

Verdict

Cristy's Call scored over a mile here early last month but couldn't cope with a 6lb rise when returning three weeks later. Mona Brown had been threatening to win for some time before finally doing so over a mile here. She looks certain to be suited by the longer trip and it will be a surprise if she's not in the firing-line but it's CASTLE GUEST who gets the nod. Mick Halford's charge looked a potentially decent handicapper when beating the consistent Everything Zain in a minor event at Clonmel in May but couldn't quite live up to that billing after being handed a massive 15lb rise in the weights. He's been given a break and looks the type who could do well this winter. Dynastic has already had a couple of trainers in the UK but has shown ability on Polytrack while Hes Our Music should be losing his maiden tag soon.
