Verdict

No Planning won at Wetherby before finishing second at Kelso. But he may not have finished ahead of Night Alliance at the Scottish track had the latter not fallen heavily at the last. Loch Ba never figured in the Hennessy last time but should this a bit easier and there are more races to be won with Emperor's Choice, though probably over further than this. SAFRAN DE COTTE couldn't match strides with Tutchec and Herdsman at Carlisle on his reappearance but will strip fitter here and revels in soft ground. He gets a tentative vote as Tartak is not the force of old and Triptico dropped away tamely at Chepstow earlier this month. Ballytober looks as though he'll need more time.
