Verdict

Richard Hannon senior won this last year with Producer and the yard are represented by Professor this time. He was placed in Group 3 contests at Salisbury and Goodwood in August so has to go on the short-list. Breton Rock made a winning reappearance at Thirsk while Hasopop has a chance on his best form. Pavlosk won in this grade at York around this time last year and was highly tried after. She'll be thereabouts if fully wound-up but The Gold Cheongsam is best watched at present. ETON FOREVER looks the pick of the weights and goes well fresh. His last two victories have come at this level and over this trip and recent showers may have arrived just in time.
