Therapeutic has looked a bit stretched racing over the minimum trip so far and has something to prove stepping up a furlong despite getting plenty of weight under today's conditions. Capo Rosso disappointed on his latest start having finished a decent third at Hamilton before that and BRANSON looks a safer option. He posted a much better effort when third to Front Page News at Windsor last time and normal progress would be enough to land this contest. Napinda will need to improve on her placed efforts to figure and the half-sister to three winners, Cerys, could prove best of the newcomers.
