Verdict

Master Dee has a similar profile to STELLAR NOTION in that he arrives over hurdles having shown promise in the point-to-point field and won a bumper. But we are going to stick with Tom George's six-year-old, despite a penalty, as he kept finding more when challenged at Newcastle and should continue on an upward curve. Jonjo O'Neill runs In The Rough and Master Malt with McCoy riding the former, a staying-on third at Towcester in December and open to improvement. Rhapando will have learned plenty from his fourth at Sandown and Spiculas hinted at ability at Southwell in November. They also catch the eye in a potentially-informative opener.
