Perfect Affair, Hawk's Eye and Breadstick make the shortlist here with PERFECT AFFAIR taken to come out on top. Breadstick improved on last season's form when finishing a good second in a competitive handicap on his re-appearance and he can be expected to improve for the run and can go well despite saddling top weight. Hawk's Eye is bred to be useful, being by Hawk Wing out of a Sadlers Wells mare and he ran his best race to date when staying on well to be second at Windsor recently. He too will come on for that seasonal debut and looks sure tio play a major part. Perfect Affair left previous form behind when a close third at Nottingham recently. The fifth has won since to give the form a solid look and Perfect Affair can make it a hot finale for punters.
