Verdict

Line Of Beauty finished runner-up in a couple of small-field maidens before well beaten in a Sandown handicap. She's rated 1lb lower than Epitaph but receives the 5lb fillies' allowance, though the latter is tried in a first-time visor which could make the difference. Second Page has had enough chances but is another in first-time headgear, Richard Hannon reaching for the blinkers. But SWISS VINNARE has more scope than the aforementioned trio and gets the vote. A 50/1 chance on his debut at Chelmsford in September, he was beaten only narrowly and a run 10 days later could have come too soon.
