Verdict

The ground will suit last month’s course and distance winner Turtle Cask though third and fourth, Court Baloo and The Conn, have a chance of revenge on these terms. FINAL FLING’s defeat of Onlyfoolsownhorses over track and trip in August represents better form, however, and he may be the one to beat if he doesn’t got bogged down on this softer surface. Too Many Chiefs has handled track and going in the past but ran a shocker here when last seen in April and Broadway Belle is now 0-13.
