Verdict

DANCING MAITE heads our shortlist. With Bravely, Misphire and Castles In The Air also forwarded as ones to keep close to hand in another race where the betting market is seldom of any use in pinpointing the outright winner. Castles In The Air has relatively few miles on the clock and, having won at Hamilton last time out, he arrives here with his confidence on a high. His stable won this with a well-backed runner last year but it might be dangerous to just assume likewise support will bring about the desired effect again today. Misphie is a more adventurous nomination and probably one to treat with caution if the going is fast. However, she knows how to win a race and, with her yard in good form, she is no forlorn hope if the ground is soft enough for her. Bravely has been the model of consistency and deserves a change of fortune. However, a solitary win from 16 previous starts tells its own story and he isn't one to trust implicitly in a finish. Dancing Maite, on the other hand, can be relied upon to give his all and, as he is in the form of his life just now, this versatile character gets the nod as a speculative each-way punt in a very tough finale.
