Gold Show and Merry Jaunt both posted disappointing efforts when fancied on their latest starts and also have something to prove over this longer trip. Top weight OUT OF NOTHING makes more appeal as she ran well for third over C&D recently and acts in soft ground. The likely going could prove problematical to Ashkalara and recent C&D runner-up Elsie Bay but Leicester winner Boonga Roogeta may figure back on Turf having finished second at Wolverhampton on Thursday. Eponastone could prove best of the remainder.
