It's hard to make a strong case for any of these and a purely speculative vote goes the way of ARTFUL LADY. She went close at Kempton on her penultimate start and a repeat may be good enough to land this. Summer Sun has been placed over track and trip but, like recent Wolverhampton third Christopher Chua, has yet to win a race. Dvinsky is capable of popping up at this level when in the mood while My Scat Daddy and last month's Wolverhampton winner Athaakeel are others to consider.
