This is a wide-open with any number capable of popping-up on their day so only a tentative vote goes the way of SETTLE FOR RED. He may find some improvement for the change of scenery having won at Dundalk in January and having his first start for Jeremy Gask today. Menelik won a seller here in February and The Happy Hammer came good again over 7f here in the same month. Kempton winner Secret Success is not out of this back on the Polytrack while Olivers Mount has every chance on recent form and Divine Rule can also figure off his current mark.
