Verdict

Planetex is 2lb lower than when successful over the course and distance last August and has to be a threat despite his weight. Tuibama won here in July and is just 3lb higher so must be on the short-list along with Lord Buffhead, whose last run on Turf resulted in a victory at Catterick ICHIMOKU has had less experience than most of these but landed a maiden on soft ground here in May and wasn't beaten far back on the track last month. Black Douglas beat One Kool Dude over 6f here last month but ran poorly on a return visit a fortnight ago.
