None of these fill one with confidence and the speculative vote only goes HOTFOOT's way given she has scope for improvement after a decent reappearance over C&D. Gordy Bee may be capable of better dropped in class and Master Of Song has claims on his return judged on his best efforts of last season. It's hard to make a serious case for any of the remainder, though Graceful Spirit ran well here before reverting to her more usual moderate form last time.
