Verdict

Irish import Crouching Harry finally broke his duck on the Flat at Chepstow last month and is only 4lb higher here but ROMAN RICHES is only 2lb higher than when scoring at Lingfield in June. It could be worth forgiving him a poor run at Bath next time, when behind Passionate Affair, on account of the very fast ground and he gets a tentative vote ahead of the consistent Cabuchon and Evergreen Forest. Sacred Square hasn't run on the Flat for a year but was third over hurdles last month.
