BERE DAVIS is our selection with Ocean Transit and Desert Dreamer likely to represent the most pertinent dangers. David Evans charge was unable to hang on after setting the fractions at this course over a mile and back to seven furlongs this evening, we will take the chance that compensation awaits. Ocean Transit made all to win at Warwick though she will have our selection for company this time around. Richard Evans is set to partner Desert Dreamer. He kept on well without threatening to win at Epsom. Lingfield winner, Head Down has had a couple of inauspicious runs on the turf though he cannot be ruled out on some of his earlier form. Memphis Man steps up in trip having ran the majority of his better races over much shorter. Greensward represents a yard enjoying particular success with their handicappers of late while Apex, who was in a rich vein a couple of seasons ago, will need to build upon a recent return to the racetrack. Bere Davis makes the most appeal at the likely odds.
