Verdict

Orange Nassau has gone up 12lb since winning easily at Newton Abbot but at least arrives in form, unlike the largely disappointing Polarbrook. Baltic Pathfinder gradually seems to be getting his act together again and Boris The Blade is 2lb lower than when second over course and distance in April, though hasn't been seen since. The latter holds Beau Dandy on their run together at Newcastle just under a year ago however. PALOS CONTI was very well backed at Perth in September but weakened on the turn for home after making mistakes. He's obviously better than that and is given another a chance to recoup losses.
