Verdict

It may be worth giving another chance to TRIPITAKA ahead of Satwa Gold and Rocky's Pride. Plenty has to be taken on trust with Michael Jarvis' runner as he proved most disappointing when returned a beaten favourite on his first run since April. He will need to leave that form a long way behind but he had scored readily on debut and may be able to get his career back on track. Satwa Gold is in fine form but his two recent successes have come in claiming company. This isn't a strong handicap by any means and he may have benefited from getting his head in front but similar marks have proved beyond him in the past and there could be some mileage in taking him on at cramped odds. Brett Vale has struggled to regain the heights he reached in the summer and may continue to be best watched whilst Rocky's Pride has never looked straightforwards and failed to take to hurdling. His new yard may well be able to find the key to him and the market should be watched closely as he has the latent ability to win from this perch. Rajamand is another to note in the market as he ran a fair race on debut for this yard at the track and looks sure to be suited by the longer trip. Connections usually have a fair idea as to whether their horses are fairly treated and the betting will be informative. Only five to consider but cases can be made for all of them in an intriguing affair so it's hard to be confident about the selection, Tripitaka.
