Verdict

The market is likely to be the best guide to this modest finale but punters should get a run for their money out of WHAT OF IT. He usually finds one too good but does have form over this shorter trip and has also won here in the past. Pistolet Noir showed little at Musselburgh back under Rules while most of the others are returning from an absence. Castle Banquet and Coin of The Realm have had a recent outing but both were pulled up.
