Verdict

Catchanova profited from an enterprising ride in an amateurs' race at Goodwood last month to beat Potentiale but may struggle to confirm that form on worse terms and also has a wide draw to contend with. PERFECT MISSION made all under Daniel Muscutt to win a similar contest at Kempton last week and is better drawn. Though probably better on Polytrack, the top weight handles Turf as long as the ground isn't soft and may well be good enough to defy his penalty. Daffydowndilly didn't beat much at Brighton and is also penalised while Lovage and Netley Marsh have become disappointing. Siouxperhero has been running well lately, however, and could figure along with Newbury runner-up Edgewater.
