Verdict

Questioning beat Twice Over in a Group 3 at Newmarket early last year but it's fair to say his career has not progressed as expected. He finished last at Windsor back in June and only beat one home in his three previous starts. Tried in a hood here, he looks vulnerable against Godolphin's THA'IR who beat a decent sort in a handicap at Newmarket last month and ran a bit better than his final position suggests at Goodwood subsequently. Fattsota isn't out of this and recent rain is very much in his favour. He won a valuable handicap at Ascot on soft ground last year. Whipper's Boy is a course winner and has his sights lowered but needs to step up on his reappearance.
