Verdict

Royal Alcor has got his act together late on in the year and bids for a hat-trick after a couple of wins at Wolverhampton. He's upped in class and is 8lb higher today, however, and will need to show further improvement if he's to land this. Sand Skier keeps finding ways of getting beat and patience has run out with him but Ecossaise, Sircozy and Buxfizz all ran well last time and can be given a chance. BEAT ROUTE won at Kempton last month before finishing a close-up fifth over C&D last week in better company. Mike Attwater's charge gets the nod here racing off the same mark in what looks an open handicap.
