Most of these arrive in good form though the heavy ground caught BLUE SHOES out at Hamilton after she'd been running well in better conditions. She is handed the vote as she had over 2l to spare over Phoenix Clubs in August and is only 1lb worse off after her rival scored at Mussellburgh a couple of weeks ago where Economic Crisis was a short-head behind. Ashpan Sam has been very busy but retains his form and won well at Bath though a penalty takes him onto his highest ever mark. Imperial Legend is better on quick ground so connections will be hoping it dries out though Dandy Nicholls may have a better chance with Indego Blues, who isn't exactly consistent but well enough treated at his best.
