Verdict

HIGHLAND ACCLAIM disappointed on his final start of last season but his earlier fifth behind Toofi in a valuable sales race at Newmarket is easily the best form on show. He won't have to run up to that level to land this and, if the first race on today's card went to plan, can land a quick double for the O'Meara yard. Soul Bother took on better company on his debut at York in June and is preferred to Shared Quality, placed over 5f at Pontefract. Sleeper Class never threatened when third at Redcar but still looks best of the rest.
