MAMBO RHYTHM is the only filly in the race and her allowance can see her home. She put a moderate debut behind her with a tremendous run at Musselburgh where she just failed to catch Mindblowing on ground that was probably much too quick. Jefferson City looks a real threat as he will certainly have come on from his debut effort at Newbury and will be ideally suited by this trip and ground. Steve Rogers and Mountain Fighter are others who will improve for their first starts while Shimba Hills has the experience to get involved.
