Experimentalist didn't do a lot wrong over the summer but the standard of opposition in this is significantly higher than recent tests. Hi Note won twice on the Flat in August while Havingotascoobydo is perfectly capable, though was pulled up when last seen in March and may be better over fences nowadays. ACT OF KALANISI will probably also be chasing again soon but he's hard to ignore here off a 4lb lower mark than when third to Gibb River at Sandown last year in a more competitive affair. He gets the vote, though Princely Player certainly isn't out of this on his best form and preferred to Peckhamecho of the others.
