Verdict

Saga Lout landed a double on Polytrack at the end of last year but has been below par in both starts this time around. Max The Machine should have come on for his reappearance at Kempton but has a couple of lengths to find with third-placed Silca's Dream while course and distance winner Balatina may do better back at this track after struggling on Turf the last twice. Twilight Pearl is yet another looking to regain her best and the speculative vote goes to WELLIESINTHEWATER, as he's had little chance in either start since landing his maiden over track and trip in August and this is easier.
