Verdict

There are only four runners in this nursery but they look quite evenly matched. Emef Diamond is the least exposed but profited from a positive ride by Tom Eaves at Thirsk in August and the second has been well beaten since. LATENIGHTREQUEST took a while to find his stride at Ayr last time but stayed on strongly to get on top approaching the final furlong and was a worthy winner in the end. Trip and ground clearly suit and he is fancied to follow up at the chief expense of Kempton third Zumurudah, who may have more stamina than Art Official.
