Forecast

Dark Vader (11/10), Hieroglyphic (13/8), Homecoming (8/1), Baron Samedi (10/1), Distant Vista (12/1), Varna Gold (12/1), Figurehead (25/1), Third Avenue (25/1), Sweettasteoflove (25/1), Secret Sacrament (33/1), China's Storm (33/1), See The Eagle Fly (50/1), Apple Valley (50/1), Accessory (66/1), Heavenly Bound (66/1), Jeff Kidder (66/1), Delta Sansevero (66/1)

Verdict

The Mick Halford yard are usually in good form at this venue around November/December and the Godolphin-owned HIEROGLYPHIC can build on her solid debut effort over C&D earlier in the month. The daughter of Exceed And Excel can win at the expense of the Joseph O'Brien-trained Dark Vader who has been running well in defeat in maiden company on turf over the summer. Homecoming, behind Hieroglyphic on debut can make a bold bid to hit the frame while Varna Gold should not be easily dismissed.
