Verdict

MASTER OF SPEED won a Sandown maiden on the Flat in June for Roger Varian and ended up with a rating of 82 in handicaps. He'll know his job here and his yard is in excellent form so he should be capable of taking advantage of the 10lb he receives from French import Pillard, who is penalised for his victory at Vichy in August. Neither Sneaking Budge nor Burner showed much on their respective debuts over timber.
