Selfara has come good lately, winning over 5f at Nottingham and Folkestone. She was second over C&D earlier but is now 14lb higher and could find one too good today. It might be worth giving another chance to MINALISA, who has been taking on better opposition since scoring at Yarmouth at the end of July and will appreciate the easier ground today. Fillionaire is 5lb higher than when successful over track and trip two runs ago and was well beaten over 7f at Salisbury last time while Duke Of Aricabeau has failed to build on his victory at Doncaster in June. The others probably have place claims at best.
