Verdict

Young Dillon is 7lb higher than when landing this 12 months ago and has been well below par in recent runs. Doing Fine is stout stayer but better over fences and having a first run since fifth in the bet365 Gold Cup in April. Another chaser, Buckhorn Timothy, has an even longer absence to overcome while Mont Choisy would have been placed at best had he not unseated his rider at Sedgefield last month. SCOOP THE POT was backed to show a return to form at Bangor in August and didn’t disappoint. He’s not had much racing so may be capable of defying a 6lb rise as Lillian may find this company too hot to handle.
