Verdict

Amir Pasha is hardly consistent but has still managed to win seven races and is the only C&D winner in the line-up. Aegean Destiny is 5lb higher than when scoring at Newcastle on soft ground in September while Climaxfortackle has never been further than 1m2f though she's always looked as though she'd stay this far. Teak had some decent form on the Flat and over hurdles in Ireland but has really found his niche at Wolverhampton. His hat-trick attempt was foiled when he tackled 1m6f last time though he's shot up 12lb since gaining his first success. Dubara Reef loves soft ground but needs further but Bavarian Nordic ran his best race for a very long time over this trip at Doncaster last Month. GRACEFUL DESCENT arrives in good form having won over hurdles at Hexham a couple of weeks ago and she looks well enough handicapped back on the Flat to defy her big weight.
