Verdict

HOOF IT blew the start at Lingfield last time but it seemed to suit as he was flying at the finish. Beaten less than a length by Tarooq, a return to winning ways looks imminent. Collateral form with the latter gives Lancelot Du Lac leading claims and Dean Ivory's charge won over track and trip in November. Forest Edge is good enough on his day but seems to have lost his edge of late and Trinityelitedotcom is proving more reliable. The latter should go well and Absolutely So is not without a chance for an in-form yard on his earlier third to Rivellino at Lingfield. Annunciation won the Shergar Cup Sprint at Ascot in August but is hard to catch right.
