After scoring over Beverley's stiff 5f early last month, THATCHERITE has missed the break on his last two starts. In the hope he jumps off with the field this time around, he's handed the vote. Jack Luey hasn't won since last May but is still 4lb higher and Cruise Tothelimit is likely to have a better chance as he's been running consistently at this level from similar marks. Mississippi has only won once in 17 starts but has competed at a higher level throughout and will appreciate the drop in class. Singeur hasn't won for two years and though Ella's Delight makes her handicap debut she has plenty to do on just her third start.
