Verdict

Citrus Mark won at Fontwell and Worcester in the summer but it looked as though the handicapper had got to him last time. Qualitee returns from a lengthy absence, as does Reginaldinho, while Five Out Of Five and Esteem have become disappointing. Bennys Quest should be thereabouts again, however, and THE GREY ONE's recent second at Fontwell hinted at a return to form. Milton Bradley's grey is quite well treated here against some old rivals and Charlie Wallis takes off a further 5lb - he may just prove good enough on ground that will suit.
