Verdict

Isdaal bids for a hat-trick and looks to have every chance as he stays this distance and won on soft ground at Chester last time. EAGLE NEBULA may prove too good, however, as though it was only a claimer he won at Windsor last time, he beat higher rated horses than he faces today and an apprentice negates a 2lb rise in the weights. Librettela scored on fast ground at Windsor in October but has a bit to prove off his current mark while Kempton winner Mons Calpe also has something to find with the principals if he's to get involved.
