Verdict

Plenty of guesswork needed as to which one of these will come good on the day. Above The Stars is capable at his best although he found RED CAPE too good in a similar contest last month. The latter went on to score again at Catterick and Ruth Carr's charge gets the vote back in plating company. Commanche Raider has been running well over 5f and Llewellyn has been placed over further of late but Roland has gone off the boil since scoring at Warwick in June.
