Verdict

Ghufa is the only C&D winner in the line-up and arrives here in very good form after a fair effort last month. Waahej has only won once on the surface and that was over two years ago while Alhaban has never won on it at all and was beaten in a seller last time. Irish Jugger has run moderately on his last two starts here and Hit The Switch has done all of his all-weather winning at Southwell so it's the three-year-old VIVA DIVA who gets the nod by process of elimination as she is one of the few here with scope and was still leading at this trip before fading over 1m6f here last time.
