Verdict

Napinda has the highest official rating in this moderate heat but has never won on the Polytrack. We prefer TOTAL OBSESSION, despite the fact that she was doing her best work at the finish over 1m2f here last time. Kieren Fallon is back in the saddle and his mount should be able to pick off this lot up the home straight. Ermyn Flyer might need this but still looks the pick of the remainder, though Great Crested has a bit more scope.
