Verdict

NOTRE BELLE BETE has yet to win on Turf though ran well for third in a valuable handicap at Newmarket a fortnight ago and gets another chance. Forest Falcon finished just behind the selection last time though his earlier wins came over further while Oh This Is Us has slipped back down the weights and was beaten only a length at Haydock last time. Several return to action with Rebel Territory raised 5lb for winning at Headquarters in October and Sinjaari and Top Secret others to note.
