Verdict

A few of these have gone backwards in the latter part of the season. Spirit Of The Law and Flaxen Flare have failed to figure since winning during the summer and Future Security hasn't threatened since making a successful return at Bath in August. Balady bucks the trend having gone very close at Epsom last time and Oddysey has decent claims on her third over C&D a week ago but the vote goes to SUPREME LUXURY. She won her maiden at Hamilton in good style last time and further progress looks on the cards here.
