Verdict

An ultra-competitive handicap and FATTSOTA is no more than a tentative selection. Marco Botti's three-year-old had some decent form in Italy earlier this year and made an eye-catching UK debut at Pontefract when only beaten half-a-length. He's a pound higher here but we may not have seen the best of him yet. Midsummer Sun has to go on the short-list after returning to winning ways at Chester, while Dhaamer won in a higher grade at Haydock in August before coming unstuck at Newbury. Absinthe and Mirrored shouldn't be far away again, while Tres Coronas will appreciate every drop that falls and wouldn't be without a chance off bottom weight. Danderek won easily at Folkestone last time and is another to consider and Creme Anglaise is back over her best trip today, though does seem to prefer faster ground.
