Not beaten far when fifth in the Grade 3 World Of Sport Gold Cup in July here over 2m; has won here in the past but on a lengthy losing run; might find this company a little easier but looks an unlikely winner

Healthy career strike-rate but not always shown an awful lot since winning a stakes race at Scottsville in February; not disgraced when seventh two weeks ago (Greyville Polytrack); looks a tall order as tougher task in this company

Healthy career strike-rate and admirably consistent; went down by 1l when runner-up with blinkers reapplied (Greyville Polytrack) 14 days ago; this represents a step up in class but should not be ruled out

Far from disgraced (beaten just over 2l) last month upped to 1m1f, Banzai Pipeline and Magical Midlands boosted the form since; a long time since his last success; hard enough to fancy with this looking tougher than last time

Verdict

GENTLEMAN'S WAGER is a strong fancy. He finished ahead of Native Tongue and Guru's Pride last month and has been successful at this track before. This distance might be a bit far for Love The View and Native Tongue.
