SUNNYSIDE TOM is in great nick and he can complete the five-timer. Richard Fahey's gelding is a formidable front-runner who has found a rich vein of form this Autumn. He isn't the best treated at the weights but this track should suit his style and a good run is expected. Stablemate Trip The Light is respected given his course record and he will be staying on late in the day, whilst if the selection fails to last home over this new trip it might be Charlie Cool who takes advantage as he drops markedly in grade. Majuro, Sohcahtoa and Jo'Burg are all rated in the 80's and respected, with the form of the last-named looking the strongest. Surprises can sometimes happen in this grade and the likeliest to spring a big one might be General Tufto who will like it if they go a strong pace.
