Boucher Garcon didn't beat much at Musselburgh on Sunday and may struggle under his penalty while the potentially well-treated pair Chosen One and Dispol Grand have a high draw to overcome, though shouldn't fail through lack of fitness. BALLARINA doesn't have the advantage of a recent run but Eric Alston's mare won over C&D on her reappearance last year and, adding Jason Hart's claim into the equation, races off the same mark today. She gets the vote as Cross Of Lorraine and Kyzer Chief will probably need this while Lucky Dan has become disappointing.
