Verdict

This looks wide-open but Wincanton second Upton Wood has yet to prove his effectiveness over this longer trip. Halucha won over course and distance last month but was then tailed off at Kempton off today's higher mark. The unexposed Fountains Mary should stay and goes on the short-list while The Rattler Obrien won over 2m6f at Wincanton in October and is also interesting. Only Witness and Tarabela could figure if fully wound-up but LOW GALES looked as though he was running into a bit of form at Doncaster and, dropped 3lb since, gets a tentative vote.
