Verdict

Allanard is feasibly treated and drops into this grade for the first time but recent efforts have been less than inspiring. Oh Right won at this level at Musselburgh and Doncaster last season and must have a leading chance but Winter Alchemy looks on the downgrade. CHICAGO OUTFIT won over course and distance off this mark in October. That remains his only success but most of his races since have been in better company and a repeat of his third at Newcastle in March would probably be good enough.
