Westgrove Berry gets the confident vote here with Bollin Ruth and Touch of Ivory rating the main dangers. The selection won with plenty in hand last time out when beating Florazine and although having a penalty for that win he looks progressive and as long as there is not too much rain she will be hard to beat. Bollin Ruth rates the main danger as he beat the selection last time and is better off at the weights but all her best form is on softer surface and she is taken on with this in mind. Touch Of Ivory has the ability to go close but she looks to have regressed of late. Of the remainder, Buffy was a fair second behind Prince Ary last time out and that form has since been franked so she could go well at a price but for the winner we return to Westgrove Berry, unless the rain arrives, in which case back Bollin Ruth.
