It's impossible to make a decent case for any of these with the majority racing from out of the weights, so a purely speculative vote goes to RIGHTCAR. His cause is helped by Slade O'Hara's claim and he wasn't beaten far when fourth over track and trip last month. Dixie Gwalia made all over 6f at Lingfield last year and is 2lb lower today but Auntie Mildred is 11lb higher than when landing a Beverley seller in May. Lord Buffhead and Chateau Lola are both previous winners over course and distance and closely matched on form.
