Verdict

TOWN MOUSE was a surprise winner over course and distance in September but has continued to run well under penalties and this is a little easier than recent tasks. He makes more appeal than the equally exposed Akdam and Keychain, who disappointed when made favourite on his UK debut at Newton Abbot. Saint Jerome's third at Ludlow is only modest form but Eton Rambler will almost certainly improve on his fifth at Wetherby and shouldn't be ignored along with French import Andi'Amu.
