In depth

Verdict

EASY BEESY won in a canter at Fontwell last week. As that was a conditionals' race, he has no penalty to carry here and will be a short price to follow up. Brass Monkey runs his best races here and was third over course and distance in August off a 3lb higher mark. He could be the one for forecast-backers as Trakeur isn't really progressing and Hector's House is making his seasonal reappearance, though he likes soft ground.
