None of these can be dismissed with any confidence. Ocean Applause has yet to win but has mostly competed in Pattern company and finished a length ahead of London Citizen when both were well beaten at Newmarket last month. The latter has failed to land the odds over C&D since while GLASS OFFICE has also faced a couple of stiff tasks since his maiden win over track and trip. The latter gets the tentative vote back at this track as Hipster's win at Epsom hasn't worked out and Wolverhampton winner Claude Greenwood has a bit of catching up to do in this company.
