Verdict

This is tricky as several look closely matched and course specialist Beyondtemptation, who loves the mud, is sure to set a strong gallop and expose any lack of readiness in Ryedale Racer, Little Bruce and Skipthescales, who are all returning from an absence. EBONY ROSE has yet to really prove herself on going this soft but she has won twice at Perth this summer when there was give in the ground so is preferred to the frustrating Bitview Colin.
