This looks a poor enough race with loads of horses that can’t be trusted. I’m always of the opinion that decent stayers, can run well at shorter trips and I think Desert Skyline could cause a surprise here. He has a couple of top quality runs this year and in this field I don’t think he is a 20/1 shot.

The Irish Rover will be suited by this trip and the small field and the fact that he’s probably the best horse in this field. 6/1 is just too big.
2 Points win 6/1 365/lads
Hayadh looked to love the Heavy ground when leading in the Lincoln before running out of steam and has since been dropping in mark. I think he will love this soft 6 furlongs and wouldn’t be at all surprised if he gets to the front and stays there (given he stays further). 25/1 looks value
1 Point win 25/1
I’ve this narrowed down to 2 that I like. Growl handles these conditions better than most and he just can’t be far away. G-Force will love the ground and looks to have been setup for a big run here.
1 Point win 9/1 Growl
1 Point win 25/1 G-Force
I’ve been on the Clever Cookie bandwagon a couple of times this year, and in fairness he has run up to his mark of 105-6 a few times. Of 98 here I think he will be involved in the finish here. 20/1 is at least 6 points too big.
1 Point win 20/1 Generally
