Verdict

Mystified is 7lb out of the handicap in this while Father Shine doesn't appear to be improving. Wild Geese was reappearing after a lengthy absence and making his debut over fences when pulled up behind Civil Unrest over track and trip last month so improvement is expected but he's still going to struggle to turn the tables on James Ewart's charge, though he was himself pulled up over 2m here last week. WILLIAM MONEY was beaten less than a length by the top weight in that race but is 7lb better off now and, all things being equal, should come out on top today.
