In depth

Verdict

Where's Jeff arrives in good form and is on a decent mark nowadays. Sudona likes it here and won at Beverley last month but Molinari has only managed to place off this mark the last twice and Seasett has rather lost his way. Kayfast Warrior seems better over shorter trips so this can go to MYRISTICA, who has run really well off this mark since scoring at Ripon in August and looks better treated than stablemate Golden Dove. Thunderclap was third over a mile here last time but has twice been found wanting over this longer distance.
