Verdict

Robert The Painter completed a hat-trick over this course and distance at the last meeting beating NO POPPY narrowly. An 8lb rise is partly offset by her rider's claim while the runner-up, who should be better suited by the softer ground, has her 7lb rise reduced by 5lb for Adam Carter's allowance and looks well enough in to go one better. Suits Me likes it around here but was put in his place by the selection on heavy ground at York in October while the in-form The Rectifier has only raced on soft ground once when almost last in a big field at Ascot. Kevin Ryan's horses are in tremendous form so Trail Blaze must be kept on the right side, especially as he will love the conditions, while the lightly-raced three-year-old Haafaguinea ran better than his finishing position suggests in the Betfred Mile at Goodwood.
