Verdict

NANTON travels over from Scotland and Jim Goldie's veteran probably has another win or two in him and this could be the first of them. The ten-year-old has three all-weather victories to his credit and proved he was no back number when a close second to the well handicapped Sir Graham Wade at Doncaster's St Leger meeting. Sylvester Kirk sends The Giving Tree from Lambourn and the very consistent three-year-old must be a threat with her low weight despite making her all-weather debut. Solo Performer has won five times here and can never be discounted and Zalanga is expected to do better than when fancied here last time and never really getting into the action.
