Verdict

Baltic Brave has more on his plate than when winning at Yarmouth but is in good form. Outback Traveller was second on the all-weather on his return and remains unexposed while Highland Acclaim arrives off the back of a win at York, though looks vulnerable here under top weight. Red Pike is upped in grade but progressing and Dutch Art Dealer should have more to offer this year. Showpiece is consistent but appears to be treading water off his current mark. It would be no surprise to see ALMUHEET do much better now back on fast going as the maiden he won over this course and distance in August has worked out really well. The market will be a good guide but he gets a tentative vote.
