Verdict

There's plenty with a shout in a tough opener. Ticking Katie got her head in front on the line at York last time and is only upped 3lb while Outback Traveller beat Red Pike when scoring over track and trip in June but has been beaten since. Marmoom won his maiden over course and distance and that looks stronger form than Mr Bossy Boots' winning debut at Lingfield. The former should be thereabouts again but ENRAPTURED is preferred. She's another course and distance winner and John Gosden's filly drops in class after a comeback fourth in a competitive handicap at Newbury.
