This is tricky with plenty good enough to win if finding their best but SAKHEE'S PEARL is the safest option. She's been thereabouts in similar company of late and at least looks certain to run her race. Honour didn't improve as expected when third over C&D last time but may do better on her handicap bow while Casual Mover has the past form to figure off his current mark. Saoi is lightly-raced and open to progress and Star Date has slipped down the weights but recent winners Zenarinda and Menadati are upped in class and harder to fancy.
