Hard to dismiss any of these outright. Good Of Luck has tumbled down the weights since May and finished a bit closer last time and Dont Take Me Alive looks capable of winning again this season off his current mark. Scarlet Belle is likely to improve again after scoring at Newbury and Ukrainian bolted up at Ayr on his latest start. However, BETWEEN US suddenly found her form at Yarmouth last week when scoring by five lengths and Sir Mark Prescott's filly is taken to defy a penalty and follow up.
