Verdict

Fly At Dawn won a handicap over a mile here last month and steps up in trip along with the rest of these. Cunco was third in Listed company at Haydock under Frankie last time but the latter sticks with Coronet, a maiden winner at Leicester recently. WINGS OF EAGLES showed signs of inexperience when winning his maiden at Killarney in August but beat the odds-on favourite well enough in the end and will likely have improved since then. He gets the vote with Star Archer another maiden winner to note along with Genetics while Defoe was placed in a conditions race last time behind a winner who is rated 104 and could go well. Euginio was fourth in Listed company in France earlier and Bear Valley is preferred to stablemate Permian on earlier form.
