Verdict

COURT HOUSE could be hard to beat here if fully wound up on first start since June. A dual AW winner earlier in the year for John Gosden, the Dawn Approach colt chased home Old Persian in Listed fare at Newmarket before running an excellent second at Epsom in a strong handicap. Mr Top Hat will be a threat if handed the controls from the front while Pactolus has to be respected if forgiving his tame run at Kempton last month. David Simcock's Nonios will be fitter here and should have place claims alongside Chelmsford winner Calling Out.
