Verdict

Haddaf has been thereabouts recently but finished behind third-placed Full Intention at Kempton last time. The latter had earlier been beaten by Fighting Temeraire at Newmarket while though Plunger won in France back in August he debuts for new connections today. Split Down South has every chance on a close-up third at Kempton a fortnight ago but novice winner EXTRODINAIR faced a more difficult task than this on a recent handicap debut when fading in the closing stages over a mile here and gets another chance over today’s shorter trip.
