Verdict

I Am Not Here was still beaten five lengths when runner-up at Doncaster on his return. He remains 10lb higher than last year's win at Newbury while Sherman McCoy was also well behind the winner when third here a fortnight ago and his last couple of course wins came over 1m6f. Dalaki has a shout off his current mark but Nonagon is upped in class for his first start since winning an amateurs' race at Nottingham in October. DRY YOUR EYES has not raced since June but improvement is expected on only his second outing for David O'Meara and he gets a tentative vote with his earlier win coming over today's trip in heavy going.
