Verdict

Raheen House is penalised for winning a Group 3 race at Newmarket before struggling in the St Leger. Mount Moriah found life tough in the Irish St Leger last time but notched-up a hat-trick earlier in the season including a course and distance success. On To Victory won a conditions race over 1m6f at Salisbury and Hochfeld landed a handicap over today’s trip in August. WEEKENDER has a bit to find on these terms but further progress is expected over today’s longer trip having gone close over 1m4f last time. The Gosden colt is also preferred to stablemate Zenon and gets a speculative vote.
