Green Park won this way back in 2008 and invariably goes well here but could have done with a better draw, a remark that also applies to the in-form Newcastle winner Wild Sauce. Beau Mistral is perfectly placed on the inside and won here in June and July so she has to be on the short-list. Hamoody won his first race for over two years at Haydock and could have done without the resultant 6lb rise so in an open contest CRUISE TOTHELIMIT is handed the vote. Ian Williams' charge is in very good form and failed narrowly to hold Another Try when tried over 6f at Haydock last time. Bubbly Ballerina won a C&D nursery at the fixture last year and, with a low draw and a healthy handicap mark, she's another to keep an eye on.
