Verdict

WEIHNACHTS missed out only narrowly last time and a similar display may well be good enough for him to go one better on this occasion. Drifting Back looks a potential danger and shoud give his supporters a fair run for their money, while Aim For Glory is another who has a sound chance on evidence so far. Summer Hill, Big Nick and Institution are others worth a little consideration.
