Verdict

Invigilator scored here back in April but remains 3lb higher despite failing to figure in three subsequent starts while a 5lb rise in the weights may prove beyond Katy Spirit. The latter won at Kempton in August while Shamrocked has picked up a couple of plating races recently, though is facing a tougher task today. FRENCH PRESS ran well off today's mark at this track last time having won over course and distance before that and John Stimpson's charge should be bang there at the finish once again.
