Verdict

Absolutely Bygones won by 16 lengths at Hexham in June but was beaten under a penalty at Perth in August and this looks more competitive. Kauto Alcazar should improve on his third at Sedgefield while Rinnagree Rosie was only beaten half-a-length at Hexham in May but one or two of the newcomers may have more scope. Aura Bora, Just Tyn and Spitz could all be useful but the vote goes to Malcolm Jefferson's ENCHANTED GARDEN, who has a Flat pedigree and may simply have more speed than his rivals today.
