Woolston Ferry was only beaten a nose the last time he raced over track and trip and has to come into the reckoning. Ssafa's best efforts have been over a mile but Mountain Range scored over 1m3f here during the summer and has a shout. Whinging Willie won an amateurs' race at Brighton in June but is 6lb higher today and BOBS HER UNCLE looks a safer proposition. She's up 3lb for last month's victory over course and distance but James Bethell's filly looks capable of going in again in this company.
