Verdict

The Game Is A Foot still carries a penalty for his earlier win at Plumpton. He was already beaten when falling at Huntingdon last week in the race won by DALRYMPLE and the latter is the one to beat again. Nick Ayliffe's charge escapes a penalty for landing a conditionals' race and can follow up. Chankillo posted one of his better efforts when third in a seller at Leicester but there's no guarantee he'll reproduce that here. Midnight Choice makes more appeal after his recent placed run at Southwell and looks best of the rest.
