The form from Too Putra's debut win looks very strong but with this a first start in a handicap and as a three-year-old preference is instead made for BEAT ROUTE, who looks weighted to run a big race, and Elvira Madigan should also be in the mix. A course and distance winner when besting Thundering Home in March the pick has been out of form since. That has lead to him falling to a mark just 1lb heavier than when winning that race and he could end up representing some value. Too Putra won his only start to date, which came at this track in a race that has produced plenty of winners. The likelihood is he'll improve and his mark is fair but he's got fitness to prove. Elvira Madigan was progressive last season and stepped up from her return run this term. More is expected now that bit fitter so she should be on the premises. Onyx Of Arabia is from a yard in form but will have to improve for an introduction to this surface so in a open looking race Beat Route can land some big odds.
