In depth

Verdict

Final Drive didn't impress when dropping into this grade at Kempton in February. Fonterutoli seems better over shorter nowadays but has the beating of Dolly Colman on recent form while Nibani is a course and distance winner. Bloodsweatandtears is well treated on his old form and was only beaten a length on his penultimate start but we'll take a chance that blinkers work the oracle for QUERIDO and, with Joey Haynes taking off 7lb, he gets the nod in a weak contest.
