Verdict

SIR GRAHAM WADE has plenty in his favour. Proven over the trip with victories at Haydock and Doncaster last month, he has every chance at the weights on today's terms and Kieren Fallon keeps the winning partnership intact. Salford Art is the highest rated in the field but struggled to make an impact in Group races during the summer but Biographer came up against the progressive Guarantee at York last time when Monshak refused to race and he make more appeal. Signed Up and Tempest Fugit are unknown quantities at this level but both were impressive winners last time and have plenty of scope.
