In depth

Verdict

INVIGILATOR remains in good form and scored over the minimum trip at Nottingham last time. He won over C&D in September and Derek Shaw's charge gets the nod ahead of the other recent winner Lord Buffhead. The latter just got the better of Chateau Lola, who runs in the first race, over 5f here last week while Scommettitrice was beaten less than a length on her latest start though she's yet to score on the all-weather. It's hard to make a strong case for any of the remainder but Imjin River suffered a couple of narrow margin defeats on the Polytrack during the autumn and could figure.
