Versatile as far has the ground is concerned and clearly on form the safest option here looks to be BRONZE BEAU. A winner three times in eights starts and in contention in the others the pick still looks fairly treated up 5lb for his latest success. Admirable Duchess also has a likeable profile and remains 1lb worse off than when last in front while Boogie Waltzer has strong claims as the only course winner in the line-up and with three wins in the last seven attempts. A tough end to the card but Bronze Beau looks the percentage call.
