Verdict

Mutin won his first four races in France including a Listed contest but couldn't make the step-up into Group company. He looks very well treated if back to form for new connections. Ocean Tempest, who has won twice around Chester while completing a hat-trick, is 10lb higher and a wide draw may be a problem. Ger Lyons knows what it takes to win races here so the consistent Tennessee Wildcat could be just the type for here though he looks a bit high in the weights. Bertiewhittle was beaten just a head in a Listed race at Kempton in November and David Barron will have him spot-on for a big run. FULBRIGHT finished placed in Group races here last year and would take some beating in that kind of form. He didn't do as well subsequently but is likely to be ready for this and looks the one to be on. Mont Ras had his first all-weather start at Kempton last month and did well to beat the odds-on Grey Mirage.
