Purple 'n Gold doesn't look the easiest of rides and though scoring at this level at Yarmouth in June he's yet to race on ground this soft. Altona takes a drop in grade though her overall form has been disappointing and she's still a maiden as is Ironically, another who has disappointed since a good run at Windsor in July. Camrock Star won a poor handicap on soft ground at Ffos Las in August but Daring Damsel has been beaten in a seller and her only success came on Polytrack. UNCLE ROGER ran his best race this season on ground with give at Nottingham in April and, as he's dropped 9lb in the ratings subsequently, is handed the vote in a very moderate affair.
