Verdict

LONRACH hasn't fulfilled expectations but her overall form entitles her to the vote here from what looks a lenient mark and she's the type to have a good winter on Polytrack. Saint By Day has continued to run well after scoring over slightly further here in September and is only 6lb higher so it will be a surprise if he's not in the shake-up. Polly Ella has won twice over the C&D and would have found a mile much too short on her latest start so has to be considered along with Hes Our Music, another who will appreciate stepping up in trip. Zemario showed signs of a return to form at Ballinrobe when last seen in August and wouldn't need much more to get involved in the finish.
