This hasn't been a good race for favourites but some big weights have been carried to victory in recent years so don't rule out Oh So Sassy despite her victories coming on Polytrack. Her trainer also runs Pearl Blue, who could do with plenty of rain. DOCTOR PARKES is very well handicapped on last season's form and looks ready to regain the winning thread after a good run at Sandown where he finished strongest of all from a poor draw. Harrogate Fair completed a double in testing conditions in May but has won three races on Polytrack so the ground may not play a big part. Lupo D'Oro's form figures don't make good reading but there have been legitimate excuses on his last two starts and he's dropped to a mark he's capable of winning from.
