Verdict

It's interesting that Anquetta is being kept on the go by Nicky Henderson, having already scored twice this term before unseating at the last when upsides. He is a classy campaigner at his best over a variety of trips and is well regarded here, whilst West With The Wind will be far better suited dropping back to this trip after failing to stay 3m last time. Rajnagan and Tindaro offer Paul Webber a useful hand but the choice is DINEUR. An easy winner at Aintree the last day over the useful Anay Turge, he represents a yard that can do little wrong at present and gives the impression he has plenty more to offer. He is taken to outpoint the topweight off a tempting mark of 10-6.
