Verdict

GO GO GREEN is the pick with Ocean Blaze and Russian Spirit the most pertinent dangers. David Brown is fast carving himself a niche as a trainer of sprinters and this son of Acclamation won well at Pontefract, and on that form, he will give the likely market leaders something to think about. Ocean Blaze won back to back races on the turf before disappointing at Southwell, she should go well here. Russian Spirit was well fancied prior to her latest run at Pontefract so it would be no surprise to see improvement today. Hotham is a credit to connections and seldom runs a bad race. Excellent Show has been tricky to catch right and would have finished closer to the winner at Chester had she not had a troubled passage. Mythical Blue bids for a hat-trick having graduated back out of plating class. Medici Time cannot afford a slow start but seems to have become much more consistent for the application of headgear. Ebraam was rated in three figures when trained by Derek Shaw though may be more reliable on artificial surfaces these days. Rasaman's stable have been in good form all year long and it would be folly to dismiss him too readily here. Go Go Green is the recommendation in a race where many can be fancied.
