Verdict

Somemothersdohavem got the better of Gabrial's King by a length at Wolverhampton last time but carries a penalty and the latter is weighted to reverse running. Hesperides scored over 1m4f here back in August and though 10lb higher today she's expected to stay the longer trip. Foster's Road was well beaten over hurdles recently but had scored on the Polytrack before that and Celtic Charlie is another with claims returning to 2m. A recent comeback over timber will have brought THE ABSENT MARE on and given she won a tougher race over C&D back in March, Robin Dickin's charge gets the vote in an open affair.
