Verdict

Gatewood could only manage third in a Group 3 at Ascot last time but that's still good enough form to consider him a leading contender. Pether's Moon has been running well in handicaps and should be thereabouts once again, while Great Hall has a better chance in this than he did when well beaten in the St Leger and first-time blinkers may bring improvement. However, a chance is taken on the lightly-raced URBAN DANCE returning to winning ways after losing out to Amralah at Newmarket on only his third start. The remaining trio all look to have something to find in this company.
