Verdict

Several in with a shout but SAINT SONNET signalled that he could be ready to strike when runner-up at Wincanton on Boxing Day so Paul Nicholls' charge earns the tentative vote to go a place better here. Wakool continued his remarkable improvement this season to make it 4-5 at Ayr 5 weeks ago so he rates as an obvious danger, with the progressive Brorson and Seddon also expected to go well.

  1. SAINT SONNET (FR)
  2. WAKOOL (FR)
  3. BRORSON (IRE)
