Verdict

Three of these stand out on official figures. Eltifaat has failed to match his promising debut run at Kempton in a couple of starts since while Mexican Mick split a couple of distinctly modest efforts with a good run at Doncaster in July. SAFARJAL is more exposed than both of the above but went very close at Nottingham last month and her fifth in the Cheshire Oaks early in the season shouldn't be forgotten. She gets the vote with Queen Of Skies and Guest Of Honour looking best of the rest.
