Dance The Rain made a winning debut on fast going and has been narrowly beaten twice on soft ground recently. However, he's gone up again and this looks tougher. Nelson's Bay looked a nice prospect when scoring at Beverley but found 1m2f on soft ground too far on his return at Newmarket. This looks more his trip and ground so he's one to note while Devdas looked in need of the run at Newmarket and would have a chance on his juvenile form. Farang Kondiew hails from a yard going well and ran well enough at Doncaster but NOW MY SUN looks the one to be on. He made a winning debut here in July and reappeared at Ascot where he led for a long way. With that under his belt he can make all here though Basseterre looks a big threat after being caught on the line at Kempton.
