LEGENDARY LARRY was an eye-catching third on his second start and he can build on that to play a leading role here. Newcomers Pay The Dream and A Place Remembered have the potential to provide the main opposition.

Verdict

RAPID LADY has been third and second on her two starts so far and is backed to make it third-time lucky here having looked one to keep on side on her showings so far. Half Way Up caught the eye when third on debut and is also considered, while similar sentiments apply to the well bred Tiffany Ofthe Nile.
