This is a tricky finale as several have decent claims. Swendab won at Doncaster last month and the form has been franked, while Kieren Fallon's mount Ice Trooper appears to be running into form. Whitecrest has only found one too good in three of her last four starts and both Welsh Inlet and Best Be Careful are usually thereabouts. There is nothing straightforward about SCARLET ROCKS but she ran well when fifth against older horse here two weeks ago and is weighted to reverse C&D running in June with stablemate Style And Panache. With the running rail to help, she could take some catching today and gets the nod.
