Tiz Morning and Bad Guy are two consistent sorts to consider, though preferred ahead of both is BAIL OUT, who is taken to gain compensation for his nose defeat at Keeneland last time. Kandinsky shaped with promise on debut and could also feasibly figure.

Verdict

OUR LAST BUCK arguably brings the best form to the table, having finished third on his debut in June, and the four-year-old is entitled to improve for that first run. There He Goes would be a threat if ready to go after a break, while No Worries Mate is the pick of the remainder.
