ROTHESAY DANCER gets the vote in this sprint handicap, with Noodles Blue Boy and Chosen One also likely to feature heavily. The selection has won nine times over the minimum trip, including over course and distance, and goes well on fast ground. She comes here in form after a decent effort in a claimer last time and also has a decent draw in stall nine, so from a competitive mark she may well win again. Like so many in this type of race, Noodles Blue Boy wins in his turn, but he is now 8lbs higher than when doing so at Beverley in May and that might just find him out again. Chosen One has also scored on the Westwood this year as part of a quickfire hat-trick last month. From 3lbs higher he is bound to be competitive. Angelo Poliziano looks to have been given a chance by the assessor, who appears to have the measure of Green Park, while the same can probably be said of Distant Sun, although his best effort might see him among the money, but first prize can go to Rothesay Dancer.
