Verdict

PARK ROW completed a double here in September and just failed in his hat-trick attempt last month when conceding the winner 11lb. He looks certain to go well again and gets the vote. Touch Of Gold stayed on strongly when scoring over an extended 1m2f here two weeks ago but has gone up 9lb and winning partner Killian Leonard can't use his claim. Universal Focus reappeared with a victory here in May and has been in fine form throughout the year. He's just 2lb higher than his victory at Naas in September and has to be on the shortlist. Magen's Moon is 18lb lower than her last victory though she's been running poorly and her stable may have a better chance with Dancing Doll, who hasn't won for two years but has dropped in the ratings accordingly.
