The veteran South Cape is still capable of winning at this level and went very close at Kempton last time. But the less exposed RESONARE makes more appeal given an apprentice's allowance negates a 3lb rise for winning over track and trip last time and Stuart Williams' charge is taken to land the hat-trick. Takitwo made the frame in a couple of previous visits earlier this year while The Mongoose is only 1lb higher than when scoring at Brighton in June and can figure. Remix makes most appeal of the remainder as drops back to 7f.
