    Verdict

    Most of these look to have had enough for the year, but that's not the case with CHEDDAR GEORGE, who scored at Newmarket on his seasonal debut in August. He's 5lb higher today but open to improvement over today's distance and he gets the vote. Kodicil may have found the longer trip here last time stretched his stamina, though the opposite is true of Brockfield, who struggled over too short a trip at Newcastle when last seen. Mighty Clarets went close in a claimer recently but will find this tougher, while Highlife Dancer and White Diamond have claims on their earlier form.
