Tortoise isn't as slow as her name might apply. She is one of the few in this with winning form on the ground and landed a handicap over a mile here in May. Remember Rocky is another who will handle the surface. He couldn't complete the hat-trick at Hamilton in June but Megan Carberry looks a good jockey booking. SILVER TIGRESS has gone up 5lb for a recent course and distance win but is probably worth following now back in form and Kieran Shoemark's claim is a plus. Ferryview Place, Troy Boy and Vale Mentor appear the pick of the remainder.
