Verdict

This is less competitive than the earlier division and BENONI can take advantage. The top weight never figured in soft ground at Newbury last time but found only one too good over track and trip before that. Relight My Fire separated a couple of distinctly modest efforts with a second at Newcastle but Lovesome has gone off the boil since going close at Yarmouth in August. Declamation scored at Beverley in July but has failed to figure in a couple of subsequent starts while Dimitar was well beaten off today's mark last week having won here on his penultimate outing.
