Verdict

Sure Route has to go on the short-list here after narrowly outpointing Double Dealer at Sandown. The seemingly mandatory 6lb weight rise hasn't done him any favours, however, while Backstreet Fighter was a 66/1 chance when scoring at Warwick and will have to prove that was no fluke. Yojimbo is taking on much better opposition than when landing a handicap over C&D 17 days ago and Dubawi Sound hasn't been seen since causing an upset on his debut at Newbury in April, though is unexposed. OUR GAL's latest third at Ascot was a very decent effort and she'll be suited by this slightly longer trip - Noel Quinlan's filly gets the vote here.
