Verdict

Surprising to see many of these descend to claiming grade, notably former Horris Hill Stakes winner, Beacon Lodge. He still competes with credit in good-quality northern handicaps and has to be seen as a major player. TOTO SKYLLACHY has featured in the John Smith's Cup and the Royal Hunt Cup in recent weeks so the move to this level must obviously afford him leading claims with race conditions greatly in his favour and he's the preference. Talent Scout has done connections proud this season and was in no way disgraced when his winning run came to a close behind The Rectifier at York and he must be noted once more in his current form. The short-list is completed by Krupskaya, who receives weight all round with Joey Haynes also claiming a very useful 7lb.
