A wide open handicap here and there is very little between many of the leading lights but the principals look to be Just Beware, She's Humble and Krasivi's Boy and the tentative vote is given to Just Beware. The selection was a never nearer third behind Brousse En Feux last time out looks sure to have come on for the run and looks a value bet in an open affair. She's Humble rates the main danger on her latest second behind Virtue but she looks vulnerable under top weight. Krasivi's Boy hails from a yard in good form and looks well weighted on his best form but he showed little last time out and is taken on with this in mind. Are You There was second behind Walsingham last time out and is another with place claims but consistency is not his strong point. This is a trappy affair and stakes should be kept to a minimum but for the winner we return to Just Beware.
