Verdict

PINTURA comes out best on official ratings and though he likes some cut in the ground he's won on all types of going and his overall form, including when fourth in the Group 1 Prix De La Foret at Longchamp, should be good enough. The old-timer Regal Parade won the Coral Sprint at York in October and is perfectly capable of a big run with his fitness advantage while Dandy Nicholls is starting to fire in the winners so Beacon Lodge, who hasn't won for two years, is capable of bouncing back. Majestic Myles has a stiff task with his Listed penalty but the consistent Arnold Lane is always worth a second look and this is his best trip.
