Verdict

Twin Appeal has been upped 7lb for a cosy win at Newcastle but is still preferred to Dutch Art Dealer, who appears to be treading water off his current mark. The latter finished ahead of Pactolus when runner-up over track and trip recently while Lingfield winner White Russian is upped in class. Kalon Brama is not without a chance back over 7f but the vote goes to SAKHALIN STAR, who found 1m1f beyond him last time but had gone close over today's trip at Doncaster before that.
