KATE SKATE, Boga and Out The Ring are the only three to have any appeal here, and we'll side with the first named. Boga beat Kate Skate on his penultimate run, but Paul Cole's filly was carrying more weight that day with the jockey five pounds over, which contributed to her being nabbed late on after looking the likely winner. Boga couldn't follow up that success though when stepped up in trip to six furlongs, and some cut in the ground might not have helped. Being bottom weight today will help the selection, and although drawn in stall six, in a small field that might not be much of a disadvantage. Out The Ring is the highest rated of those to have a mark, and hasn't been out of the first three in four races to date. He's been unlucky not to win a race yet, but this sort of contest should be within his scope. Hopes can't be that high for Do More Business making his debut in a seller, so we're happy to side with Kate Skate.
