Verdict

It was soft ground when SWILLY SUNSET won at Yarmouth a month ago but Anthony Carson’s gelding handles quicker surfaces and Silvestre De Sousa keeps faith with the four-year-old, who has only been raised 3lb. Rustique is very much a Yarmouth specialist but he’s been a beaten favourite the last twice there. Carcharias is still 7lb higher than when winning here in October while this looked too far for Intimately at Newmarket last month. Course specialist Welsh Inlet is also better over 7f while Kafoo has disappointed this year and Binky Blue prefers Tapeta.
