It could be a profitable afternoon for Ryan Moore's followers as SILLY BILLY looks the one to beat in this finale. Successful over a similar trip at Beverley in August, Brian Ellison's charge has done little wrong since including when only beaten a length over 7f here last time off today's mark. Justcallmehandsome looks a light of former days but Mudaawem is only a three-year-old and has run his best races on Polytrack. Punditry has his sights lowered and would have claims on the form he showed in the spring but none of the remainder have shown a great deal lately.
