Verdict

SERGEANT PINK never looked like catching Grey Life when third at Carlisle during the week but that is still the best form on offer in this. Diane Sayer's charge makes more appeal than recent Fontwell third Attimo but The Society Man could prove more troublesome on his fourth to Chestnut Ben over these fences on Boxing Day. Future Gilded and By The Boardwalk arrive out of form though the former is lightly-raced and has scope for improvement.
