Raymond Tusk heads the field of seven after a very good second over two-miles at Ascot on seasonal return, but must cope giving weight out all round and the reduction in trip.
Sixth in last season’s St Leger, he has some good form to his name at Newbury, when winning on debut here this time last year, and finishing second best to Charlie Appleby’s Hamada in August.
Back down to a mile-and-a-half which he was successive at last year in France, so has every possibility of transitioning that form to home soil.
