Verdict

It's six years since a market leader won this finale and this season's renewal looks no less competitive. Patriotic is proving much better at Wolverhampton than elsewhere and may struggle confirming earlier running with Aldedash. The latter won his maiden at Nottingham last season and should be thereabouts along with the frustrating Chatterer, who usually finds at least one too good. CASUAL MOVER had been progressing well on the Polytrack before floundering in soft ground at Newbury last time and, given John Best's colt should be more at home on today's surface, he gets the nod. Knowe Head and Bloodsweatandtears have place claims.
