    Verdict

    Connections of Ripoll will be hoping for a good run from Holiday Magic in the previous race to boost the chances of their Wolverhampton runner-up. But the top weight may struggle to confirm earlier Kempton running here with MASARZAIN on 8lb worse terms and it’s James Given’s three-year-old that gets the nod. Last month’s maiden winner Out Of The Ashes should be capable of better while Rockley Point is usually thereabouts. Flying Fantasy was running in better races on Turf in the summer but Ballylare was turned over in a seller at Lingfield last time and Vincenzo Coccotti was a beaten favourite at Wolverhampton after winning a Class 5 here last month.
