In depth

Verdict

Panthers Run reserves his best for this C&D and is 4lb better off than when just over three lengths behind Ibn Hiyyan 11 days ago. Prince Tam has never won away from Newcastle, however, while Saddle Pack has been well below his best so far this season. Transact would have a chance on his best form but we'll give another chance to SACRE TOI, who won well over this trip at Newcastle before disappointing over 2m4f at Ayr and has a claimer taking off 10lb today.
