Verdict

It's difficult to know what to make of BUCHANAN after his debut success on Polytrack at Lingfield but he looked raw and inexperienced and can only improve. His mark of 90 looks a bit excessive though he looks the type to go on to better things starting here. Leitrim Pass, a maiden winner at Musselburgh in October, has been a beaten favourite three times this season and was easily brushed aside by Mighty Yar at Sandown though the winner looks quite useful. Correggio steps up to this trip for the first time and shouldn't be inconvenienced as he's been staying on over a mile.
