This claimer has plenty of highly rated animals in it and FREMEN might just be the best of those. He comes here in good form after seven wins this year, including in this grade. David Nicholls' charge isn't badly treated by the framing of this race and has a chance of reversing form on Sunnyside Tom now back on song. Dubai Dynamo drops to this level for the first time and his handicap win at Newcastle in May off 94 looks cracking from coming into this. Charlie Cool is a stable-mate of the last mentioned and has claims but was a little disappointing last time so Fremen could win again.
