Verdict

It's a while since SIR WINSTON has got his head in front but Victor Dartnall's gelding didn't do a lot wrong on his reappearance at Fontwell and has been dropped a couple of pounds in the weights since. He gets a tentative vote though Stop The Show has plenty of stamina and had Ballinhassig behind when finding only Brunette'Sonly too strong at Lingfield earlier this month, while Marias Rock should strip fitter for her comeback third to Just Josie at Folkestone. El Diego and Might As Well also have place claims but Amazing Valour looks to be on the downgrade and Kaycee has disappointed since finishing second on his chasing debut over C&D in October.
