This is another tough race for punters to fathom but UNDERWORLD is put forward as the pick; Ordnance Row, Adversity and Vanderlin rate as the main dangers. Mark Johnston's unexposed 3-year-old arrives here in good order having won well at Newbury last time when he beat The Snatcher. He is a tough sort and he looks to be on an upward curve so from a good draw he can win again. Ordnance Row is capable of going close here but there are doubts over whether this sharp track will suit and the draw could have been kinder. Adversity won well here back in June but the handicapper took note and he could be one to swerve off his current mark. Vanderlin also goes well here but he is pretty exposed and it will be disappointing if he is good enough to win this. Underworld is improving with each race and he is taken to lead them home.
