Verdict

All three of POTTERS APPROACH's wins have come over distances of three miles or more and the way he was running on over 3m2f at Chepstow in first-time cheekpieces suggests there should be more to come from the seven-year-old. Morney Wing is an ever present in this sphere and has a respectable record at this track, while Robert's Star and Mighty Leader are both useful stayers who can have a say in proceedings.

Verdict

ROBERT'S STAR made an encouraging start to the season when third at Stratford where he was doing all his best work at the finish. This stamina test will be right up his street and he is marginally preferred to another potentially useful chaser in Potters Approach. Shanroe Santos also enters calculations and Doing Fine will merit serious consideration if going to post.
