      Verdict

      A wide weight range between the top and bottom of the sextet and the only one to have placed the last day is Tamachan who was nevertheless beaten over 13l into third spot at Brighton. It all makes for a really hard race to unravel but ANYONECANHAVEITALL had looked ready to win on the back of two useful efforts after a gelding operation before failing to sparkle a Catterick last time. He may well prove better suited to this long galloping straight and is taken to bounce back for Mark Johnston off an unchanged mark. Highland Sky probably needed his reappearance but was beaten a long way and is best watched so Twenty Years On is suggested as next best.
