No recent winning form on offer in this so a purely speculative vote goes to INVIGILATOR. He was runner-up off today's mark on his penultimate start and beat Ladydolly over C&D back in April. Richard Hughes' presence failed to bring a change of fortune for Uncle Timmy at Kempton last time but he's back in the plate again today and the three-year-old could figure while Rightcar and Sally's Swansong are previous C&D winners with a chance if bouncing back to form. It's hard to make a serious case for any the remainder, however.
