Not that many can be seriously considered here and this could turn out to be a decent opportunity for BRIDGEWATER BOYS who is preferred to Desert Destiny and Terminate. The selection has struggled on his last two starts but they came in more competitive races than this and the decision to switch blinkers for a visor could pay dividends. He ran well at Hamilton at the start of last month and is no stranger to the winner's enclosure. Desert Destiny is the pick at the weights but he never got competitive at Redcar and has his stamina to prove at this trip. Therefore, Terminate appeals as a bigger threat following his run here last time where he stayed on strongly to make the frame over a marginally shorter trip and his relative consistency is certainly in his favour. Dimashq and Wulimaster make some appeal of the remainder but preference is for Bridgewater Boys.
