Alans Pride (11/2), Enter The Red (13/2), Rattling Jewel (7/1), St Brelades Bay (8/1), Polly Douglas (8/1), Rapid Applause (8/1), Tobacco Bay (8/1), Fuwairt (10/1), Comhghairdeas (12/1), Golden Pearl (14/1), Swish (14/1), Master Speaker (16/1), Independence Day (33/1)

Verdict

Alans Pride has been a beacon of consistency lately and scored in a big field here last time, he should give another decent account but might be undone carrying a penalty. Similarly, the filly Polly Douglas is thriving this season and has raced up the rating with three wins already. She went well off her latest mark at this track a week ago over 5f and is not dismissed readily. ENTER THE RED was a C&D winner in June and ran a pleasing race to be second to a rival in form this month, he can give this a decent having gone up the minimum for that showing. Rapid Applause and Tobacco Bay are also worth considering.
  1. Enter The Red
  2. Polly Douglas
