Many of these have claims on the race but it might be worth taking some chance at some value and opting for WOODCOTE PLACE. This is a step up in class for the gelding but he loves this track and looks fairly treated now 4lb worse off than when winning last time. Bullwhip looks one of the more likely after facile success on his last start while Desert Creek showed he's not far from his best when only beaten late at the track. Hajoum comes here off a win so should be looked at but Woodcote Place can cause a surprise.
