Not many of these can be given a serious chance. Captain Sharpe has claims, however, having finished a close-up fourth over 2m1f at Bath back in May as he's dropped in the weights for his return. ZAAHYA looked decidely one-paced when third over 1m4f here in August but John Dunlop's filly has little to beat in this if staying the longer trip and she gets the tentative vote. Blue Dune proved she stayed the distance when runner-up over C&D last Saturday and, with the remainder hard to fancy, she should be involved in the finish once again.
