Verdict

Recent Wolverhampton winner Amoure Medici has a 5lb rise cancelled out by an apprentice's claim but was well beaten over C&D last month. Evanescent is open to improvement despite a modest handicap debut at Thirsk but Iffraam has failed to figure on Turf since scoring on the Polytrack in June. A visor replaces the usual blinkers on FAYR FALL and may give him the edge he needs to get his head back in front after three placed efforts. Mitchum his struggling to reproduce last year's best form but has slipped down the weights as a result and could bounce back.
