    Verdict

    Rangali beat the odds-on Catcall two lengths in a Group 2 at Chantilly in June but has a big penalty to overcome here and the runner-up's connections will fancy their chances of turning the tables on 8lb better terms. MOVE IN TIME has been narrowly been beaten in competitive handicaps twice in a row since winning a minor contest at Newmarket. He's well up to this grade on that evidence and his form last season and the booking of Richard Hughes has to be a plus. Caspian Prince is very speedy but so is Mirza, who will take him on at the head of affairs. The ground may be too quick for Penmaen but the three-year-old Wind Fire has a chance at the weights as he hasn't been beaten far in good company the last twice since landing a Listed contest at Sandown.
