Verdict

ALTAAYIL was rated 93 when winning a maiden for Sir Micheal Stoute back in 2015. He’d been hurdling for new connections until finishing second in a novelty handicap back on the Flat at Epsom last month and could go close off his current mark. The three-year-old Master Singer takes on older horses today having struggled in tough handicaps recently while Dominating, Perfect Summer and Gavlar were all placed over 2m on the all-weather on their respective latest starts. With Pleasure won over a longer trip at Bath in August but remains 8lb higher today.
