MINTNTHAT comfortably had the better of Retirement Beckons (second) when they met at Ayr earlier in the month and he can uphold that form here off an 8lb higher mark. Dandy's Angel rarely runs a bad race and she is likely to enter the reckoning once more along with Zealous, who would hold strong claims if bouncing back to the form that saw him finish third here on his penultimate start.
Prediction : 1st Mintnthat 2nd Retirement Beckons 3rd Dandys Angel

Cruelly denied on debut at Newcastle, TRIBAL HUNTER is the clear form pick in this line-up as he looks to go one better than that excellent effort. Bred for the turf being by Sioux Nation, Richard Fahay's colt is preferred to Thankuappreciate, who is a little more exposed after three runs but has shown improvement on each occasion. Of the newcomers, Wall Street Crash stands out for the in-form John Quinn team.
Prediction : 1st Tribal Hunter 2nd Thankuappreciate 3rd Wall Street Crash

Turned out again quickly after a cracking placed effort in the Great St Wilfrid on Saturday, MARK'S CHOICE can take advantage of a marked drop on grade on just his second run for new connections. Never outside of the first three in six starts over C&D, Kats Bob must enter calculations along with Jordan Electrics, who is better than what he showed at Haydock last time out. Handicap debutant Carlton And Co and Surprise Picture can also have a say in proceedings.
Prediction : 1st Marks Choice 2nd Kats Bob 3rd Jordan Electrics

COTAI WEST won cosily over this trip at Newmarket last month and a 1lb raised mark for that seems fairly lenient. Oisin McSweeney's 5lb claim makes her look feasibly treated and she is entitled to go well again. Burj Malinka now sports first-time cheekpieces and, given he is now rated 3lb above his last winning mark (coincidentally over this C&D), he merits plenty of respect. Melody King completes the shortlist.
Prediction : 1st Cotai West 2nd Burj Malinka 3rd Melody King

LUMBERJACK made a pleasing start to his racing career when finishing a decent third on his debut at Ripon in June. He is entitled to improve with that run under his belt, but Bellshill Beauty recorded her best effort to date when running on for second over 1m2f at Doncaster recently and she seems the biggest threat to the selection. Yorkindness would be foolish to rule out given the stable she represents and she also merits consideration.
Prediction : 1st Lumberjack 2nd Bellshill Beauty 3rd Yorkindness

Empirestateofmind steps up in trip following a cosy win at Thirsk over 1m last month, but he could face a tough ask off top weight. Therefore, preference is for the Roger Varian-trained GLAM DE VEGA, who makes his handicap bow following a comfortable win over 1m at Ripon most recently. He was beaten by Walk Of Stars on his second start but that rival has since competed in both Group 1 and 3 company and is now rated 107. Yaaser is another to note.
Prediction : 1st Glam De Vega 2nd Empirestateofmind 3rd Yaaser

A step up in trip looks set to suit RALPHY BOY TWO, who was narrowly denied victory on his most recent run over 1m3f at this track. He is rated 1lb higher for that run and is capable of giving a good account, while connections of Crystal Guard reach for cheekpieces in an attempt to see him closer into contention. Haven Lady is another to look out for.
Prediction : 1st Ralphy Boy Two 2nd Crystal Guard 3rd Haven Lady
