Verdict

In a wide open closer GREY BOY is just preferred over Cottonfields with Fire Raiser also very much on the shortlist. Despite a poor effort when fancied last time off a reduced mark the selection can be given every chance based on his run here off this mark two starts ago in a race where plenty have something to prove. Cottonfields has been consistent this season and the form from his placed effort last time has some strength to it and he looks one of the more likely. Fire Raiser is from a yard going well and isn't badly treated based on his penultimate run while Harting Hill is very consistency but might just need a reprieve from the assessor before getting in front. A very tough end to the card and the Grey Boy is only a percentage call.
