Verdict

HESPERIDES is steadily improving and got off the mark over today's trip at Kempton last time. He's up 9lb but this won't take much winning and he can follow up. Simply finished a bit closer at Warwick on her latest start and is preferred to Runway Girl, who was still beaten eight lengths when third over C&D in July. Kittens has outside claims if forgiven a below-par effort in soft ground at Chepstow but Kashgar is a disappointing sort and the remainder are even harder to fancy.
