Verdict

Rocktherunway sets the standard with his recent placed efforts in handicaps but it will be no surprise if one of the less exposed types improves past him. HAMAN fits the bill as better is expected from him this year having finished a modest third on his debut at Windsor in August. Incitement is another four-year-old who could figure on his return from a lengthy absence while Aegaeus should finish closer over today's longer trip after failing to figure on his debut over 1m2f. Countess Ferrama takes a bigger step up in trip and is another worth a second glance on her reappearance.
