Verdict

This probably isn't as competitive as the first division with recent winners Dancing Freddy and Main Beach probably worth opposing off their new marks. Pearl Blue and Celtic Sixpence were both beaten favourites last time, as was MOSAICIST, but James Fanshawe's filly has been rested since finishing last of five on the Polytrack in August and can show the benefit of that break here. She isn't badly treated on earlier wins here and at Kempton. Maze has been in decent form and should run his race again but Bassett Road appears to have lost his way and Dominium has been racing over further in the main this year.
