In depth

Verdict

Lajidaal won at Fontwell back in June but reappears off an 8lb higher mark and isn't exactly prolific. Gary Moore muddies the waters by also running SAWAGO, pulled up on his latest start at Fakenham and now visored but potentially well treated on a couple of previous runs over the C&D. The latter gets a speculative vote as Owner Occupier appears to have lost his way and recent C&D second Flowerbud has flattered to deceive in the past. Lingfield third Rosoff looks the pick of the remainder, though the returning Quapriland is unlikely to fail through lack of fitness.
