Verdict

The Osteopath is still fairly treated on his best form, despite picking up a penalty for scoring at Haydock. Michael Dods' eight-year-old is one for the short-list in this finale alongside Climaxfortackle, third at the same track last week. The ground may not be quick enough for Violent Velocity, however, and Ay Tay Tate is better over further. Nolecce will enjoy the ground and Muftarres sees out this trip well enough and could improve a little for the fitting of blinkers but there are still races to be won with OH SO SAUCY. Chris Wall's mare is steadily dropping down the weights despite some decent efforts of late and is now a pound lower than when successful at Newbury in September last year - this is her best chance since.
