It's difficult to make a strong case for any of these and SUNSET BOULEVARD is only a speculative selection. He's now back on the same mark as when scoring at Lingfield in June and could bounce back as a consequence. Beauchamp Xiara was winning her first race in 27 starts when scoring at Brighton recently and will do well to follow up as Chantilly Dancer was only a length behind on that occasion and re-opposes on better terms. Zelos Diktator ran a shocker in finishing last but may do better back on Polytrack and Croix Rouge could prove best of the rest.
