Verdict

LYSINO only had two rivals to beat at Uttoxeter last month but won easily enough, despite taking a firm grip and hanging in the closing stages. He won twice on the Flat in June and is on an upward curve and should take all the beating here. Osgood only won a seller at Huntingdon in May and Unidexter's recent victory on the Flat came in that lowly grade. Mont Royale ran poorly last time over a longer trip and Mount Vesuvius has shown nothing this year but Border Station likes it here and is starting to come down the weights.
