Verdict

Watersmeet was expected to open his account at Kempton last time but found an unfancied newcomer too good. He finished a couple of lengths ahead of MAAHIR on that occasion but the latter can take his revenge in this. Marco Botti's charge was effectively having his first outing on that occasion, given he'd unseated shortly after leaving the stalls on his debut, so improvement looks likely today. Stablemate and newcomer Arcamante is related to winners in Italy and won't have to be anything special to finish ahead of the remainder given their uninspiring efforts so far.
