Hard to make a serious case for a single one of these so Kieren Fallon's presence on TALKATIVE GUEST earns the latter the token vote. Heavenly Pursuit finished fourth here in June and could figure with a repeat, but Acclamatory has slid down the weights without so far showing any improvement. The same comment applies to Slatey Hen, while Bambika wasn't beaten far on her debut at Lingfield back in February and may be capable of better.
