Verdict

Snowy Dawn scored over 1m6f here in July but today's slower ground is a worry and Fitzwilly makes more appeal on his latest second at Goodwood. Young Jay and White Month are looking for that elusive first win and both step up in trip today having finished runner-up on their latest outings. 1m6f winner Chocala may have been a little rusty on his first start since May when third at Kempton and makes more appeal than Montjess, but another chance goes to course regular GABRIAL THE MASTER. He's been threatening to score in better company than this including when second to Lemon Pearl here last time and today's longer distance may see him finally do so.
