SOFT FALLING RAIN was carrying a Group 1 penalty when easily landing the trial over 7f and will be difficult to beat. His SP will no doubt reflect that however, and though he won with plenty in hand the runner-up has let the form down subsequently. Those who ran behind him don't appear to have much of a chance of reversing the form but Glass Office is much better than he showed and can get closer. He didn't get the clearest of runs and with that under his belt Dave Simcock's triple Polytrack winner looks a big threat. Tom Dascombe's Deauville Prince, who won a Listed contest at Ripon in August, has a bit to find but could earn some lucrative place money while Fortify, who has been competing in Grade 1 company in the USA, is a bit of an unknown quantity for Godolphin.
