Verdict

Represent has gone 15 starts without a win now but not from want of trying and went close again when runner-up at Yarmouth last time. Marinus broke his duck only by a narrow margin at Wolverhampton on his latest start though he should still be thereabouts. Moody Dancer posted a better effort on the Polytrack last time and Classic Falcon could figure on his first start since April but the vote goes to SCOUTING FOR GIRLS. He found only Lionrock too good at Lingfield back in March and is just preferred to Joyful Spirit as the latter may not be suited by the drop back in distance.
