Extortionist and Fast finished third and fourth in the Flying Childers at Doncaster but HOT STREAK arguably brings the best form into the race. He was third in the Mill Reef at Newbury but had the pace to win over this shorter trip at York in August, when Excel's Beauty was only fourth, and can come out on top today. Royal Mezyan is also interesting as he was fifth in the Norfolk Stakes over track and trip in June before easily landing a maiden at York while Hay Chewed is heading in the right direction. The once-raced Outer Space may be the pick of the remainder as Scruffy Tramp holds a verdict over Umneyati from earlier in the campaign but looks held by a number of these on the form book.
