In depth

Verdict

Cool Operator won nicely over a shorter trip at Uttoxeter under today's conditional and should go well again despite an 8lb rise. OVERQUEST gets the nod as he was well backed on his return from a lengthy absence and duly obliged at Ayr last month. He remains unexposed over fences but Royal Mackintosh was ending a three year losing run over C&D last time and is harder to fancy raised 7lb. Earth Planet was pulled-up on his reappearance and finished last of three over 3m6f at Bangor on Friday and though he went close off higher marks on a couple of occasions last season it's a big ask to come here after Friday's exploits.
