Tailwind had 3 poor runs in 2016, when it won and was 2nd before then the times were slow and it may need further so a lay in my eyes.
Elusivity is my 4th top rated but there's very little between 2nd and 4th spots, this may be too far and it might prefer a slower surface, so not for me in it being the winner.
Fredricka is my 3rd top rated and can be held up or track the leaders and has every chance of making the frame if doing its best.
Dark Side Dream is a front-running sort but its final times have been on the slow side and not in my top 5, so maybe not able to lead here and may struggle.
Entertaining Ben another possible pace setter but its zero from 6 runs on the all-weather surfaces and its run at Wolverhampton was poor and a possible lay in this race.
Richter Scale a known front-runner and maybe the number one horse from the 2 the trainer runs in this race but its times have been slow so not for me here.
Something Lucky a versatile sort with its running style and that includes leading and its best time put it 2nd top here so ought to have place claims.
Poppy In The Wind can be held up or track the early pace but its best time has it just outside my top 5 so will need others to falter if its to make the frame.
Bahango hasn't any form on this course and distance but did a reasonable time at Wolverhampton and can lead so if taking to the track it could possibly make the frame.
Imperial Legend usually likes to sit just off the pace tracking the leaders and its best time puts it in the 5th top spot so could sneak into he frame if others under-perform.
Spirit Of Wedza looks very likely to need further to show its true colours and in this race, I would look to lay it if there's any value in doing so.
Cruise Tothelimit I another versatile type and is also my top rated and the 3lb's the apprentice claims ought to help its cause to get back to winning ways.
Thorntoun Lady is a holdup type of horse and its best time suggests it will struggle to get competitive in this race.
Lotara has only produced a slow time also looks likely to need further if it's going to show its best form so could be staying on at the finish but likely too late.
SUMMARY: With 6 of the 14 runners having been known to lead this could be a fast run race especially as my top 2 ratings can both lead but both are also versatile types who can deploy any tactics and still be competitive, there's very little on the clock between the top 4 ratings but the selection CRUISE TOTHELIMIT 33/1 is being ridden by a good 3lb claiming apprentice which will enhance its chances also this horse seems to produce its best when carrying a lower weight against slightly better horses and looks to have its ideal circumstances in this race and the price on offer means it can be backed as an each-way wager.
Cruise Tothelimit 33/1 Unp
