Verdict

Buckhorn Timothy finished fourth at Stratford back in June and that looks stronger form than Thats Yer Man's placed effort at Wincanton. But SADDLERS ENCORE finished fifth to Josses Hill, who has subsequently won again, at Ascot on his debut and any improvement on that should see him off the mark. Dancing Shadow and Ugolin De Beaumont are newcomers worth noting though Wolftrap, a half-brother to a couple of winners, could prove best of the debutants.
