Verdict

PETER GRIMES is confidently expected to land the spoils for the in-form Alan King. Our selection is one of several from the yard who struggled for large parts of last term but as a consequence he appears very nicely treated, so with an encouraging Wetherby return unlikely to have been lost on him expect a much improved display. Descaro has progressed very well on the flat this year and therefore rates a threat if translating that improvement to the winter game while fellow flat recruit Hypnotic Gaze ties in closely on their respective achievements on the level. Full Of Joy is one to watch very closely in the market having been alloted what will surely prove to be a generous handicap mark and he's preferred to Hippodrome of those at likely bigger prices.
