Verdict

THE GOLDEN CUE bounced back to form when dropped to this trip at Nottingham last week, winning quite cosily, and he is capable of defying a 6lb penalty. A day later, Everkyllachy continued her creditable recent form when second at Brighton, and she is a big threat. John Joiner is also shaping as though his turn is near and is another for the shortlist, along with Fantasy Justifier, who is better than he showed at Bath.

Verdict

The vote in this open-looking handicap goes to STAFFA, who has acquitted herself well on both previous visits to this course, including when third off a 2 lb higher mark over C&D in August. Conditions won't be a problem and she gets the nod ahead of John Joiner. Harrison Stickle will be a threat if on-song, but recent Nottingham winner The Golden Cue has more on his plate this time.
