In depth

Verdict

Hard to be confident about any of these but COACH MONTANA won a seller over today's trip at Yarmouth in September and had both Stag Hill and Chrissycross behind when fourth over C&D a fortnight ago. He gets a token vote ahead of Auntie Kathryn, who finished runner-up over track and trip last week, though Dickens Rules was fourth at this track last time and has been dropped another couple of pounds in the handicap. Authora has one good run at Newbury to recommend her as she steps up in trip.
