Verdict

Decent Fella is 8lb higher than when scoring here in June and Bestfootforward was raised 9lb for last month's win over course and distance. Orbison has been in woeful form either side of a victory at Windsor while Jimmy Elder would prefer a faster surface. ROCKY REEF has been placed in soft ground of late and this is easier than his latest task at Salisbury where he finished third. Philip Hide's charge can land this now back on a winning mark.
