In depth

Verdict

Qulinton is a stout stayer but hard to predict and is probably better on quicker going. Market Option is another who appears to have two ways of running but Nalim has each-way claims, though is still 9lb higher than for his sole success. Millicent Silver hasn't really taken to fences so far so it may be worth giving another chance to SON OF SUZIE. Fergal O'Brien's grey was placed over 3m2f over hurdles so maybe this big step up trip will help him recoup losses incurred when a well-backed favourite last time at Towcester.
