Verdict

Hypnosis was pulled out of an intended outing earlier this week so it is reasonable to assume connections see this as a better opportunity but under a nice weight LE TOREADOR is preferred while The Nifty Fox can't be ignored after victory last time. The selection narrowly missed out on landing a hat-trick on his last start when taking on a decent field during Glorious Goodwood. A return to this class is an obvious plus as is the jockey booking of Amy Ryan whose claim takes his load below that of his last win. On a bare line of form The Nifty Fox is ahead of the pick after his meeting against Feelin Foxy last time and while he is still weighted to be in contention he looks to have a little to find now. Hypnosis seems to have been limited by her current mark recently but it could be argued this is her easiest opportunity for a while and Raccoon looks due a win and the way his yard are firing at the moment it could be here. Really tight stuff this but Le Toreador looks best treated.
