Manderston was third in a C&D seller on his penultimate start and has to be considered in this equally uninspiring contest. Camrock Star is the form pick on her first couple of runs in decent maiden company but has gone backwards since and the safe choice is probably ASTRAIOS. He had Milwr and stablemate Plead The Fifth well behind when second in this grade at Kempton last month and may not need to improve much on that effort to go one better in this. Bogey Hole has hinted at ability and may be the pick of the remainder.
