    Verdict

    Nazreef is at his best on the Polytrack and beat Double Dealer over C&D back in April. The latter is better off at the weights today but both are drawn high, as is George Guru. The latter's good progress on the all-weather came to a halt on the Turf this summer while Switzerland is also best on Polytrack and beat Loving Spirit a head over C&D last month. Chapter And Verse won this in 2010 but was unplaced off a higher mark last year, as was Indian Jack, and Weapon Of Choice was comprehensively outpointed here last week by ROYAL EMPIRE. The latter won eased down on that occasion giving the impression he was not far off Pattern class so Saeed Bin Suroor's unexposed Teofilio colt gets the vote.
