Verdict

Reve De Nuit arrives in fine form with a couple of wins on the all-weather under his belt. But he's won only twice on this surface in 33 attempts and WAR POET is preferred. The latter went close at Wolverhampton last time and a repeat of his second at York in October will make him hard to beat in this company. This is much tougher than the claimer Sherman McCoy won here last season but Safe Home is not as easily dismissed dropping down in class and Ethics Girl has each-way claims at the weights.
