Verdict

The Gordon Elliott-trained EMPIRE BURLEQUE can get off the mark for connections at the eighth time of asking on his first start since July. The Gigginstown House Stud-owned seven-year-old can progress in this company at the expense of recent third at this course, Important Message who ran well in defeat last month behind The Chapel Field, in a race where the winner has gone on to win again. Fight For Love and the J P McManus-owned Fighting Fit are two that need to bounce back to form and are worth a check in the market as post time approaches. The solid and consistent, My Manekineko should go well once again.
