Forecast

Atalanta's Boy (6/4), Doc Sportello (4/1), Major Valentine (13/2), Smokey Lane (13/2), The Lamplighter (8/1), Just Glamorous (8/1), Naadirr (10/1), Clear Spring (10/1)

Verdict
MAJOR VALENTINE is in the form of his life at present and connections seem to have found that the key is to give him plenty of rest between racing. He put up a career best to score over course and distance and a repeat of that effort will see him being very hard to beat. Atalanta's Boy looks to be the main danger and there was a lot to like about his win at Doncaster in July. Expected to improve, the only downside might be the expected easy going he might encounter. Clear Spring is close to retirement but he has been managed well by connections and certainly has a chance on the best of his form.
