Verdict

Numide and Radetsky March both need to improve on what they've show so far this season, as does Quinte Du Chatelet, while Wings Of Smoke hasn't been seen since finishing fourth at Hexham in June. Ballyquin Queen looks to be on an upward curve, however, and Mercury Bay has yet to finish out of the frame under Rules though is another returning from a break. Mauricetheathlete returned to winning ways over 3m on heavy ground at Chepstow earlier this month and shouldn't be far away. But he looks an out-and-out stayer and may be vulnerable over this shorter trip so the vote goes to BLAZING BUCK. You would go a long way to find a weaker contest than the seller he won at Leicester last month but he does have winning form in better company and that easy victory will have done wonders for his confidence.
