Prohibit probably isn't the force of old but is a former Group 1 winner racing off a decent mark in a Class 2 handicap. Racy has run well in some valuable sprints this year while Burning Thread got back to winning ways at Sandown last week and can't be ignored. Above Standard was well backed for a competitive handicap at York last month but got taken off his feet before staying on when the leaders had flown. He might appreciate a return to 6f so preference is for SMART DAISY K. She had Addictive Dream behind when third at Chester last time and won here in July. Fellow three-year-olds Rocky Ground and Normal Equilibrium could also feature in a well-contested opener but the once-useful Confessional appears to have lost his way.
