Verdict

Squirrel Wood certainly wouldn't be winning out of turn and is likely to be in the firing-line again. Fonterutoli won off a higher mark over course and distance last winter but Hamble hasn't shown much on the all-weather so far while Gypsy Rider finished a distant last on his only previous try over a mile. Stamina could also be a problem for Birdie Queen but three of UNCLE FRED's four victories have come over the trip and Patrick Chamings' eight-year-old has done enough lately to suggest he's back on a decent mark - the top weight gets the nod.
