EWELL PLACE has been highly-tried since winning a conditions race at Newbury back in July. That's easily the best form on offer here and the drop in class should see Dandy Nicholls' charge back to winning ways. Brocklebank never threatened back in this grade last time but still finished ahead of Bint Alzain but the remainder all have a lot to find on today's terms. Kashmiri Star could prove the best of them having scored at Brighton in August.
