PRAVDA STREET was beaten only a length in a hot handicap at Ascot in July and a repeat effort here would make him the one to beat. Brian Ellison's charge is preferred to Lovelace and Everymanforhimself as they're struggling for form at the moment, although both could figure if producing their best, while Flowing Cape finished a close-up fourth at Kempton on Thursday and should be thereabouts again. The remainder have plenty to find on today's terms with C&D winner Polemica making most appeal.
