Verdict

NEMETAN goes well fresh and has a surprisingly good strike rate over the larger obstacles. Back over fences for the first time since finishing second off a 5lb higher mark in March 2009, Victor Dartnall's 10-year-old can come out on top in this. Take A Mile continues to disappoint while the handicapper looks to have a grip on Princely Hero and the potentially well-treated Nostringsattached appears to be going backwards. Morenito and Double Chocolate are less exposed, however, and could figure if their long absences don't count against them.
