Penny's Gift is the stand out horse in this field but she's likely to be a short enough price given the nature of the race so we'll put forward Prowl and ACCEDE as each-way alternatives with marginal preference for the latter. Richard Hannon is mob-handed here and none of his quartet could be ruled out but Penny's Gift is by far and away the likeliest winner of this contest. She has her ideal conditions and has only been beaten narrowly in two Group races already this season and it will take a good one to lower her colours. This is far from an exact science though and she'll make little appeal if starting at 2-1 or shorter which is perfectly possible given the form that she's got in the book. The draw is also a slight concern given that none of the seven winners of this race have been drawn in single figures. Therefore, we're going to take a chance with Accede from her high berth. She has been off the track for a while which is a cause for concern and the conditions will also be faster than when she won at Newbury in May but the form of her two outings has worked out nicely and she may well have been kept back for a tilt at this valuable prize. Foundation Room was a shade disappointing on her return from a break at Doncaster but may be worth another chance here, Positivity's Beverley third looks a good deal better in light of subsequent performances by the first two home, Rosy Mantle won in a fast time on debut and is well regarded whilst Shiva Adiva hails from a yard that has made a name for itself with juveniles but concerns remain about the well being of the string. Those are just four others of interest but the last place on our short-list goes to another runner that hasn't been seen since early in the season. It has to be a worry that Prowl hasn't run since her debut at Leicester in May but there were a lot of positives to be taken from that performance and the form has some substance to it. Penny's Gift should prove hard to beat here but Accede may be able to give us a decent run at a price and is the suggestion.
