Verdict

SUEGIOO was caught in the final furlong in a higher grade handicap at Newmarket over 1m2f last month. He'd stayed well enough when an earlier third at the same track over today's longer distance and can open his account in this. Hamilton winner Queen's Estate has a shout back at this level after being well beaten at Goodwood and the same applies to Noble Alan on his earlier third at Chester. Kathleen Frances was a losing favourite when only beaten a head at Epsom in July and has claims in first-time blinkers but Watts Up Son has something to prove stepping up in trip.
