Verdict

Jockey bookings suggest Pippa Greene is expected to do best of the Henderson trio in this, despite a disappointing effort at Wetherby at the start of the month, though it will be interesting to see how Fourth Estate fares after an 18-month absence. Poet was a useful sort on the Flat who is lightly raced over timber while Ranjaan is 2lb lower than when beating the smart Third Intention at Taunton the season before last. ROMAN FLIGHT hasn't been seen since finishing third to Sea Lord in a Listed handicap at Market Rasen in July but David Dennis' five-year-old will enjoy the good ground and can use his Flat speed to good effect around here.
