Verdict

Hard to be confident about any of these but WHITECREST looks the safest option. She went very close in soft ground at Brighton last time and beat Cruise Tothelimit, Rylee Mooch and Love You Louis when runner-up at Leicester before that. Madame Kintyre just failed to catch Ginzan at Windsor on her latest start and can figure with a similar effort while Speightowns Kid continues to run well without getting his head in front. Even Bolder has been given a chance by the handicapper being dropped 3lb after a third at Lingfield where he had the winner of the 2009 renewal, Brandywell Boy, well behind.
