Verdict

This looks tricky as Asterism boasts the highest official mark and best form but hasn't raced since 2011 when winning at Kempton for Sir Henry Cecil. It doesn't bode well to see her competing at this level on her return and WEST END LAD is preferred. He won with plenty to spare over track and trip last time and can confirm running with Chosen Forever, despite the worse terms. Temuco beat lesser opposition in a seller at Lingfield recently but this is easier than Faithful Ruler's latest task behind Red Somerset and he can figure.
