Keep It Cool has shown nothing this term while Tartan Jura has been sending out mixed messages on his last four starts. He'll probably pop up sooner or later but is only one from 19 in his career to date and is passed over here. Rosairlie looks high enough in the weights while Miss Macnamara sprang a 25/1 shock here last time after showing glimpses of promise when trained in Ireland by Jessica Harrington. ZAPLAMATION, second that day, is better off at the weights here and continues to deliver a solid account in these low-grade staying contests. His consistent overall profile earns him the vote. The main threat could be Amir Pasha, who has compiled an excellent record at this track and rates decent each-way value.
