Verdict

Pensax Lad scored at Leicester last time but only beat Ridge Ranger by a length and is worse off at the weights. The latter would be a stronger fancy with a better draw but, as it is, the vote goes to SCARBOROUGH. The latter ran well for second in a tougher sprint here in June and a repeat would see him go very close. Neither Meadway nor Captain Myles could cope with a raise in the weights for earlier wins on their latest starts while Jolly Red Jeanz has his first start for a new yard having beaten Pushkin Museum over 6f here last month.
