MADAME BLAVATSKY was beaten a couple of lengths in heavy ground at Hamilton three weeks ago. This is easier and that form gives her the beating of today's rival Jordaura. Monthly Medal also has decent claims on his latest second at Newcastle and had earlier finished ahead of both Military Call and Mangham at this track. Future Wonder is mostly consistent and looks best of the rest on his soft ground win at Ripon back in August.
