Both Majuro and Chapter And Verse have failed to figure since winning on the Polytrack last month while C&D winner, Numeral, hasn't raced since March. Emkanaat beat previous dual winner Fast Finian at Wolverhampton last time and should go well but Centrifugal's winning run came to end at Folkestone last time and he's gone up another 3lb. Rustic Deacon bounced back with victory at Sandown in August but ALRAASED went close to defying a 7lb rise at Yarmouth last time having scored over C&D before that and is just preferred to Golden Tempest and Little Black Book in a tough race to call.
