Verdict

KNOW MORE OATS was very green on debut at Exeter in April but kept on nicely in the closing stages. He'll shown the benefit of that this winter and, as his yard does very well with its bumper horses here, he gets the vote today ahead of July's Perth winner Henllan Harri and winning pointer Tara Road, not beaten far at Sandown on his first run under Rules. Ebony Empress and The Snappy Poet are open to improvement but Morebutwhen disappointed at Fontwell on her second start and Grey Earl will need to settle better than he did at Towcester.
