Verdict

MISTOFFELEES gets the nod in preference to Peintre D'Argent. The pair clashed at Ascot in July where the latter came off best but the feeling is that Luca Cumani's runner has improved since and also that this race should suit him more. Dazzling Light's second to The Fonz is rock solid and this quicker ground won't be a problem, and along with Oriental Cavalier and Antigua Sunrise he rates high on the list of dangers. Maneki Neko is up 5lbs for a Catterick romp but that was an Amateur Riders' race and the more reliable form may be held by Royal Trooper, Bollin Greta and Royal Straight.
