Verdict

GRILLETTO may not have won a race so far this year, but he can still boast superior form to the opposition. James Tate's charge has come against the progressive Teophillip in both recent starts, including a Listed race at Lingfield three weeks ago, and can land this if running up to the same level. He also beat today's rival Red Dragon here in October and the latter has won twice over course and distance since. That included a defeat of subsequent winner Blazeofenchantment while Run It Twice needs to find a bit more to figure. Al Emirati is lightly-raced and should be winning again this season after ending the last one with a victory at Brighton.
