Verdict

Ann Duffield has her yard in much better form after a painful start to the season but Dead Reckoning looks to have plenty on here despite scoring at Pontefract last time. LEXINGTON TIMES has to concede her 5lb but looks well up to the task, the Paco Boy colt dropping to 6f for the first time after being exclusively campaigned over 7f to date. However, he's consistently shown good pace and can outclass these rivals as the form of his Newmarket maiden win at the July Meeting is working out well. Surewecan looks his main rival and will appreciate the easier task than when fifth behind the high-class Ivawood in the Richmond Stakes at Goodwood.
