Verdict

In-form Bennys Quest is on a hat-trick after wins at Newton Abbot and Sedgefield. His latest victory has been franked by the runner-up but GIANT O MURCHU has improved since being pulled up behind Synthe Davis and Try Catch Me at Fontwell in June and is eased in grade after finishing third over course and distance last month when Tri Nations was behind. Synthe Davis is an obvious danger under McCoy but may prefer a stiffer test of stamina.
