Verdict

There's two exciting French recruits in the line-up who come into the race with similar profiles and may prove to be on lenient marks. The gelding operation may have done worked the oracle for Qassem and Hugo Palmer's runners often come on for their seasonal reappearances but narrow preference is for the Charlie Fellowes trained REPERCUSSION. He ran a sound race on his debut for this yard and the forecast soft ground could see him in an even better light. There should also be more to come from Al Neksh who gets the services of Frankie Dettori, a jockey who rides this course particularly well.
  1. Repercussion
  2. Qassem
  3. Al Neksh
