Verdict

Three-year-olds have won the last three of these and are well represented. Correspondent has won twice here and is still progressing, though a 7lb rise for his latest success gives him more to do. Ayaar was around three lengths behind in that latter event and is 6lb better off so should get closer and the other from the younger generation, Top Notch Tonto, has been raised 3lb for being beaten a short-head at Newmarket. Richard Fahey runs Brae Hill, who rolled back the years in a claimer at Sandown, and Alejandro, who has won two of his last three and doesn't look too badly treated. Both Es Que Love and Bertiewhittle are on long losing runs and look high in the ratings so it's ENROL who is given the nod as she has looked to be crying out for this sort of trip in recent runs and finished third in a Listed contest last time.
