In depth

Verdict

LORD SINGER finished a close-up third at Lingfield to the progressive Renard last month and that's the best piece of recent form on offer. This looks less competitive and Gary Moore's charge is the one to beat. Midnight Opera is too inconsistent to be a strong fancy as she was a tailed-off third last time having been beaten only two lengths at Uttoxeter before that. Pin D'Estruval also posted a couple of poor efforts either side of scoring at Newton Abbot in September, but Coach Lane was unlucky when brought down early on at Wincanton last time and had come back to form over today's C&D before that.
