Verdict

Two of the last three winners have started at 20/1 and 25/1 and it looks very open. Pour La Victoire has been running well and will have found dropping to 7f at Brighton against him last time but the trip and ground won't be a problem for CELESTIAL BAY, who was just outpaced over 1m1f on soft going at Newbury and can go one better. Hot Mustard is still 5lb higher than his only success though his young rider's claim takes care of that while Fair Comment found stepping down to 1m2f suiting her at Ffos Las though whether she'll have the pace for this is another matter. Tenbridge is just 2lb higher than when scoring here in June and generally runs well on the track but Greyemkay is now on his highest ever mark on his 42nd start which may prevent a hat-trick. Dark Reality is well in on the best of her form while Belle Park rarely runs anywhere else these days but usually over further.
