With Storm Hawk a doutbful stayer we will suggest BEAT ROUTE to take this moderate handicap. Michael Attwater's colt has, admittedly, been comfortably beaten on a few occsions this season. However, he sees out this trip well enough, handles the surface, and has now been dropped to a more attractive mark, so we will chance him. Rowan Light is a lightly-raced filly who has claims if able to show her best with first-time blinkers fitted. Dazzling Begum is a consistent sort in these Polytrack contests but looks in the grip of the handicapper today and Beat Route is selected.
