Verdict

Boxing Shadows is unexposed on Turf having won a couple of races at Wolverhampton, including his latest start, and his form looks superior to that of Bapak Bangsawan's at the same track. Bogsnog finally got off the mark at Bath in September and returns to action on the same mark while Tumblewind has a shout on his comeback second at Ripon. Cracking Choice also finished runner-up over track and trip last time but LEXINGTON PLACE is just preferred as he made all to score over 6f here earlier this month and today's shorter trip shouldn't be a problem.
