Goldtrek and BENMADIGAN won divisions of a handicap over 2m4f here last time. The former had been well beaten in five previous starts over timber and is hard to predict so the vote goes to Nicky Richards' charge who wasn't winning out of turn and should go close again. Solway Dornal wasn't far behind the selection and can also figure but Vallani has lost her way since landing a double at Perth in August. Irish raider Street Runner is 13lb higher than his win at Down Royal and course winner Jago River was pulled-up on his reappearance.
