Verdict

CHATTERSON hasn't won for a while but has been knocking on the door here recently and runner-up on latest visit. He should get his head in front sooner rather than later again. Similar comments apply to Like A Prayer who narrowly denied last time out and would surely go very close if in the same form. Song Of The Sky produced a career-best on turf last time and is a danger subsequently while Against The Breeze is a contender at this trip after course success in October. 1. Chatterton 2. Like A Prayer 3. Against The Breeze
