Perfect Act comes out best at the weights, although she failed to land the odds when dropped into this grade back in March and hasn't run since. AYE AYE DIGBY looks a safer option as he can usually be relied on to run his race and his best form is good enough to land this. Lutine Charlie won a seller over C&D earlier this month and should figure, but Waabel will need to step up on his recent form in handicaps to get involved. Desert Icon was winning for the first time in 13 starts on the all-weather at Wolverhampton three weeks ago and it remains to be seen if he can do that again.
