Verdict

Shantaram is beginning to look like a really useful stayer and won a Group 3 at Newmarket in convincing fashion when last seen in July but the time was very slow and the form hasn't worked out. Pale Mimosa won a Galway maiden on heavy ground by 15l before landing the Listed Galtres Stakes at York though runner-up Sequence has been well beaten since. Many of the home-based entries have been beating each other with Verema having a neck to spare over Canticum over the C&D a month ago and the latter having Smokey Hill just behind earlier. TOP TRIP finished strongly behind Masterstroke in the Group 2 Grand Prix De Deauville in August, looking as though a longer trip was required. He should again take care of Tenenbaum, though Andre Fabre's charge didn't get the best of runs, and is handed the vote in a tricky opener.
