Verdict

A hat-trick hero during the summer, Louis The Pious has been holding his form well in similar company since but has gone up another 5lb despite not winning. Recent 7f Doncaster winner Sirius Prospect has been raised 6lb in the weights and it was soft ground when the frustrating Elusivity finally got his head back in front at Newmarket last month. Swendab arrives on the back of a treble in lesser-grade sprints over 5f so a chance is taken on PABUSAR. He's without a win this season but a repeat of his second behind subsequent Listed winner Swiss Dream at Newmarket in July with today's rival Elusive Prince behind would be good enough to land this contest.
