This is tricky as the likes of Galleon and Ruscello won their penultimate outings and drop down in class after failing to figure in much better company last time. Yazdi has also been set some stiff tasks since scoring at Thirsk back in May and could figure but Dedication has been off the track since winning on his seasonal debut over 1m3f here. Nordic Quest is still improving and went close over C&D earlier this month while Caphira should go well back on this surface. But in an open race, a speculative vote goes to TIGER CLIFF. He looked to have a bit up his sleeve when scoring over a shorter trip here last month and there should be more to come on his handicap bow.
