Verdict

There's no shortage of options in this cavalry charge but top weight MASAMAH gets the speculative vote. He's been competing in pattern races since beating Racy and Jiroft in a Class 2 handicap at Ascot in July and also has the beating of Free Zone and Cheviot on more recent form at Beverley. Secret Witness drops back in distance after a good effort at Doncaster with a handful of these behind while Burning Thread and Lady Gibraltar also have claims on their recent efforts over the minimum trip. Noble Storm finally returned to winning ways at Leicester earlier this month and is not out of this either with a similar effort.
