Verdict

None of these arrive in sparkling form and though Ziggy Lee won his latest outing at Beverley, that was back in July and this is tougher. Kimberella won easily at Ripon earlier but failed to cope with an 8lb rise at Newmarket last time and Doc Hay has run nowhere near his best in either start this year. A prolific winner in France, Lover Man finished last in the Ayr Gold Cup on his first start for a new yard while both Hopes N Dreams and Noble Storm have struggled since winning conditions races in September. COSMIC CHATTER can only be a tentative selection as he failed to win last season but did go very close at York at this time last year off a higher mark. David Barron's charge gets the nod on that basis.
