In depth

Verdict

The front-running Hallings Comet is a course specialist and is bidding for a sixth victory here. Solstalla is also a course and distance winner and will be all the better for her reappearance. Excellent Team ended a losing run at Newton Abbot in July but Oskemen fell at Southwell after winning a novice event at Uttoxeter and then finished last at Perth. COMPETITION is back in the right grade judged on his latest second to an in-form rival at Newton Abbot and looks weighted to win in handicap company for the first time here.
