Multiple all-weather winner, Bookiesindex Boy has had 31 starts on Turf without success but went close at Southwell last time and may pop-up on this surface one day. Copper Falls has yet to pop-up anywhere and was still beaten four lengths when second at Kempton a fortnight ago and preference is for AVONVALLEY. He's not exactly prolific nowadays but one of his two wins on Turf came in soft ground and he gets the token vote after a couple of recent placed efforts. Scommettitrice has slipped down the weights and could prove best of the rest.
