Verdict

Theologist may just need this but was a progressive stayer a couple of years ago. DREAMSOFTHEATRE won twice over this trip at Newton Abbot in the summer and may have another victory in him, despite another 6lb rise, as he gets on well with Maurice Linehan. Brackloon High and Royal Native also stay well but lack a recent outing, as does Bally Rone, while So Fine is treading water off his current mark. Red Not Blue needs some help from the handicapper.
