Hard to be confident about any of these, but ROYAL SELECTION was beaten only a length over a mile here last time and gets the vote dropping back in trip. Mucky Molly has placed efforts over 6f to her credit but her recent form has taken a nosedive while though Lovat Lane was runner-up over C&D early in the year, she hasn't raced since April. My Best Man showed a bit more last time without looking like winning and the remainder have yet to post any form worthy of a mention.
