Verdict

Dakota Canyon has shown little since scoring at Wolverhampton in March and Talent Scout has looked in the handicapper's grip since winning over track and trip last season. He was well beaten here last month when Blue Maisey finished runner-up and the latter makes more appeal. Eutropius made a winning return on the Fibresand at Southwell and has plenty of scope if proving as effective on today's going but ALLURING STAR looks a safer bet. She scored by three lengths at Beverley three weeks ago and is preferred to Dialogue as she attempts to follow-up.
