Verdict

Upton Mead was runner-up to Princely Hero, who runs earlier on the card, here 11 days ago but a 3lb rise in the weights for that effort looks harsh. Chestnut Ben has McCoy doing the steering but is generally a weak finisher while Roc De Guye was in better form in the autumn. TIME BOOK was all out to beat Shantou Breeze, another who runs earlier in the day, over course and distance last time and is 5lb higher in this. But that was only his second start over fences so it's fair to assume there will be more to come and he's preferred to habitual front-runner Morestead and the one-paced Rosoff.
