This could be fought out by a trio of class droppers, with EL CUPIDO getting the vote ahead of Pekin and Rapunzels Cat. Neil Morris' charge is preferred as he has shown more promise in more valuable races, most notably over 7f here back in April.

Verdict

The Great McHenry had Right On The Money (third), On The Lead (fourth), On This Day (fifth) and Triple Clown (sixth) behind when second over track and trip last time and can confirm those placings, but DROOPY gets the vote. The five-year-old produced a strong finish to score here last time and could repeat the feat.

Verdict

Dimitri's Romance made all to beat HOLY CHROME last time, but the former is likely to have competition for the early lead, which could play into the hands of Marion Cuttino's mare, who came out on top in their previous meeting. Hurricane Josie is another to note after winning nicely last time.

Nightclubber is erratic but dangerous if at her best, while Insidious Cat looked horribly out of form before running third here last time. Preference is for HATTA DOUBLE, who won her maiden well three starts ago and has not been disgraced in better company since.

LAND CASTLE is hardly unexposed having run 11 times before, but she has gone close the last twice and is evidently on good terms with herself. Mackenzie's Star has claims on recent form, but she was behind the improving Hattitude last time.
