Verdict

Serena Brotherton has another good ride in this second division as Honoured won over the trip at Ripon in July when Ptolomeos was well behind. But this time we prefer Hayley Moore's mount SOUTH CAPE, who hasn't got his head in front since winning over a mile here two years ago but has dropped to a ridiculously lenient mark and has shown that he stays this longer trip recently. Edgware Road was second at Wolverhampton on Friday but is better on the all-weather nowadays and has something to find with Nolecce on the form book. Kingaroo also prefers to feel the sand underneath his hooves but Hernando Torres could figure, though is starting to edge up the weights again.
