Verdict

Dick Bos was winning a Class 3 handicap as recently as June but arrives in woeful form as does Dorback. The latter and Picansort have also won handicaps this season but TITUS GENT has the best recent form. The latter has ran well at Newmarket and Ascot on his last couple of outings and a similar effort should see him home and hosed in this company. R Woody has the past form to go close if first-time eye-shields have the desired effect.
