Verdict

Whitefall went close at Lingfield and Warwick earlier in the summer but has been beaten a total of 27 lengths in his last two starts. Petersboden was also well beaten at Bath but Market Puzzle looked to be on the way back at Epsom and looks the biggest threat to CHASIN' RAINBOWS. Sylvester Kirk's mare won this 12 months ago and the race has probably been the aim again. A recent second at Ffos Las bodes well in this grade.
