Verdict

Scene Two has finished runner-up in his first three starts over timber but may once again be playing it out for frame places. Dereks is 10lb higher than his last winning mark but the trip and ground should suit. He was last seen behind Khorun at Southwell but on a line through that winner, LUCAINDUBAI seems to be the better option having beaten Khorun at Ffos Las towards the end of August. He continues to improve with each outing and with potentially more to come from the Evan Williams trained gelding he gets the vote. Beidh Tine Anseo completed a hat-trick in May and could be a threat, as could Astracad who races off a career high mark, however the biggest danger is likely to be Organisateur. He has impressed in two starts over timber by winning both tries and has to be respected from the Paul Nicholls yard.
