Verdict

Roman Ruler was gaining his first success when making all at Wolverhampton and looks fairly treated. St Oswald didn't have much room in the closing stages behind Ted's Brother at Newcastle and can get into the mix but it's RYEDALE DANCER, who scored over the C&D in July and is only 3lb higher, who is handed the vote. Starbound won a Brighton maiden before badly missing the break at Yarmouth and The Buska has to be on the short-list after a fine second to Adorable Choice on his handicap debut at Nottingham. Thatcherite and The Buska are close matched on an earlier run but the latter has the most scope and can come out on top this time.
