Kingarrick likes soft ground and would need the rains to arrive but Swift Blade had looked a progressive type before hanging badly at Epsom and can be forgiven that lapse. He should go well but preference is for SPANISH PRIDE. John Dunlop's filly was a big disappointment when a short-priced favourite at Brighton in July but put that behind her with a much better effort over a trip too short at the same track last time and has the scope to do better. Mini's Destination is another who would prefer softer conditions but she likes it around here and looks reasonably treated.
