Verdict

It could be a case of last man standing in this very ordinary seller. The trip has to be a concern for supporters of Leopard Hills, while NICKY NUTJOB seems better on a faster surface. James Banks' claim is a major plus, however, and he does have a bit form over this distance so gets a very tentative vote. Capellini, Hard To Tell and Kingston Tiger all sport headgear of some description for the first time but are clearly modest.
