STRAWBERRYMYSTIQUE has only raced on Polytrack so far, culminating in a win at Wolverhampton in March. The half-sister to Group 2 winner Strawberrydaiquiri has plenty of potential for improvement on this surface and gets the vote. Mighty Clarets won a lowly seller at Leicester last time and will find this tougher but Vanilla Rum could make the frame after a couple of decent efforts at Newmarket. Ampleforth won in soft ground at Hamilton last term and looks a bigger threat than Mount Abora, who has done his recent winning on the all-weather.
