Verdict

CACTUS VALLEY got off the mark at Sandown last time and is worth sticking with in this as he's less exposed than his main rivals. They include Cresta Star, who should appreciate the drop back to her winning trip while Henry Clay moves in the opposite direction having scored over a mile at Kempton recently. It was soft ground when April Ciel won over C&D in June under today's apprentice and he makes more appeal than both Lingfield winner Falcon's Reign and Daghash.
