Verdict

It's difficult to make a strong case for any of these. The veteran PHLUKE has been holding his form well at Brighton this season and gets a token vote in the hope that he can reproduce that form here. Olney Lass is another recent Brighton winner having scored over 7f last time at the 16th time of asking, while Madame Excelerate has crept up the handicap for her recent placed efforts. Come On Safari won a seller on the Polytrack recently and Bold Cross has made the frame in similar company on his last two starts.
