Verdict

Ubetterbegood popped-up at 25/1 in last year's renewal so isn't easily written off despite arriving badly out of form. But PERFECT PASTURE makes more appeal despite stepping up in class as he rattled up a four timer with a easy win at Redcar last month and even a 10lb rise may not be enough to anchor him in this. Plenty of others have claims if back to their best, but punters can only guess as to who that might be. Prohibit and Fitz Flyer are both good enough on their earlier placed efforts in similar company, Love Island finished fourth in a tougher contest in September and the veteran Tax Free pays a rare visit to the all-weather.
