Verdict

Amoralist won over 1m1f on the Polytrack as a two-year-old but has struggled in general on the Flat this year and it remains to be seen if a change of stable and a switch to hurdling will re-ignite his enthusiasm. SWNYMOR looks a more promising recruit to the winter game as he handled soft and heavy ground on the level and also appears to have plenty of stamina. His defeat of Mashaari over 1m4f at Pontefract in June worked out well and he is taken to make a winning start to his hurdles career. Hector's Chance was well beaten at Warwick 10 days ago and may need faster going so Superciliary should prove the best of those with experience.
