ZORRO DE LA VEGA can leave his mark on this contest and he has the vote while Kinkeel should run a strong race as usual and Maclean is also given a chance. The pick took advantage of a very low mark to score in a decent handicap at Hereford two starts ago. The handicapper has clobbered him for that and a good run under a penalty in a better race than this last time but he should have enough dropping down into selling company in conditions that suit. Kinkell is consistent has the come especially in races of this quality and he looks well enough treated to go close again here. Maclean likes it here and is weighted to be involved after placing off a similar mark last time out in a similar test. Campden Annie needs to be respected dropping into selling company for the first time and it will be interesting to see how she handles the ground, the like of which she hasn't seen since her debut. Manly Money has been solid on his last two starts, form which have him in the mix here but he would need to improve to be the selection Zorro De La Vega.
