Verdict

Yes Chef is likely to improve now going handicapping while this wouldn't be beyond Butler if he consented to put his best hoof forward. Sheena West's string is in good nick and Ya Hafed has the past form to figure but Wheres Johnny is starting to look a little long in the tooth, though he's a C&D winner like MY SISTER and Just Beware. Mark Usher's mare is probably on a decent mark and has been kept ticking over on the Flat over the summer. She would probably win this if anywhere near her best.
