Race Verdict

The safest option here is STAND GUARD. He was rather disappointing when sent off long odds-on for a Southwell seller last month but even a reproduction of that runner-up effort would probably make him the one to beat here. Gay Sloane comes out best on these terms and he can certainly play a leading role if putting his best foot forward. Shy is a capable sort at a lowly level and she could take advantage if the aforementioned pair fail to deliver.

Selection: Stand Guard        Danger: Gay Sloane        Alternative: Shy
