In depth

Verdict

BE ALL MAN finished runner-up to previous winner Population at Ascot last month and Sheena West's charge is taken to go one better. That form looks superior to Opening Batsman's recent close second at Taunton and Talkonthestreet's three-length defeat at Aintree in October. Barney Cool was a disappointing favourite under a penalty at Chepstow last time after scoring at Fontwell on his debut in May, but Railway Rico and Fearless Leader are open to improvement and could prove best of the remainder.
