Verdict

War Poet is a decent handicapper on the Flat though he'll need to improve on last year's efforts over timber. GRAND DIAMOND makes more appeal on this occasion as he went close at Kelso before a failing to figure in much better company here last time. Swaledale Lad's best form over hurdles entitles him to consideration on his first start since May and Bridlingtonbygones has a shout dropped in class. Parc Des Princes beat Formulation at Market Rasen back in August and along with Lillioftheballet and King Brex is another with claims in an open contest.
