Verdict

The veteran Vainglory is still capable of winning races but this isn't his ideal track. Star Lahib's latest run at Pontefract must be ignored as he was hampered and he's better judged on an early narrow defeat at Doncaster. Honey Of A Kitten scored twice at Wolverhampton last month and had a run over hurdles last week so he'll be fit enough but An Cat Dubh landed a 7f maiden here in August and has yet to prove he stays anywhere near this trip. DOLPHIN ROCK rarely runs beyond a mile these days but just about lasts home over this trip on a tight track and he's well enough handicapped to make all.
