Fairweather Trader made all to win a claiming race at Beverley over the minimum trip last week. He beat Autumn Revue easily enough but whether he'll last home over this longer trip is open to question so the vote goes to BINKY BLUE. She has to be forgiven a below-par effort in better company at York when Fazenda's Girl finished ahead of her but has every chance if back to the sort of form that saw her finish fourth at this track earlier. The remainder are hard to fancy.
