Verdict

The last seven favourites have won this, four of them odds-on, and MISSY TATA should join that roll of honour. Placed in testing ground at Auteuil, she made a spectacular start for Gordon Elliott at Down Royal, slamming the in-form Lake Champlain by 19l with Tiliver another 15l back in third. Elliott also runs the newcomer Rocket Punch, a dual winner over a mile for Andrew Balding during the summer. Rashaan has a double penalty for impressive victories at Roscommon and Listowel and he looks a very nice prospect as does Le Vagabond, a dual Flat winner in France and the very easy winner of a Thurles maiden for Edward O'Grady. There are plenty of nice types amongst the remainder but the principals will be difficult to beat.
