Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

OPERA GIFT shaped well when fourth in an above-average novice at Goodwood 9 days ago and looks the one to beat with this longer trip sure to bring out some improvement. Duck And Vanish disappointed at Doncaster in July but that form looks better now and he rates the main threat having been gelded and undergone another breathing operation.

Betting Forecast

20/1 Citronella, 13/8 Opera Gift, 100/1 Billy Bathgate, 7/4 Duck And Vanish, 20/1 Red Derek
