Hard to be confident about any of these judged on recent form and a purely speculative vote goes to MISS DUTEE. Richard Hannon's filly has shown little since winning a nursery back in July but, with Kieran O'Neill's claim taken into consideration, she's 9lb lower today and that could bring about a return to form. The remainder are all still maidens, but Cathcart Castle showed signs of improvement last time and could figure again. Sleeping Brave had been placed three times before his latest poor run at Warwick and Tymismoni has a close-up second at Kempton to her credit in between more modest efforts.
