Verdict

The hat-trick seeking Art History has picked up a penalty for his recent win at Beverley but is clearly on the upgrade and preferred to stablemate Golden Hinde on this occasion. Amwell Pinot had Angelic Upstart behind when successful at Wolverhampton last month but was well beaten off this mark at Kempton subsequently while Casual Mover probably didn't beat much at Lingfield on his debut and races from out of the handicap proper here. Labarinto and Glencadam Gold are both capable of improvement this year and shouldn't be discounted but Luca Cumani's POPLIN, an excellent third over a mile here in September, is sure to be suited by longer distances this season and could be the one to beat today.
