Verdict

Vertueux is the only one of these to have won at the trip and he's well enough treated to give a good account though the distance is no problem for KAYEF, who is very well handicapped if anywhere near his best. A winner on the Flat in France and over timber at Sandown, he was having only his second start since 2011 when a close fourth to Our Folly at Goodwood a couple of weeks ago when Bramshill Lass was just behind and can start making up for lost time. Honest Strike has gained three of his four career victories on the Polytrack here including his last two so he's an obvious threat to all while Ginger Fizz won a Southwell bumper last year and won't be lacking stamina.
