NO REGRETS returned to form when finishing second in this grade over a mile here last month and his closing effort that day suggests this greater stamina test will suit. I Aint Tellin invariably runs his race in this grade and looks next best ahead of Agripino.
LARGE has reached the frame in stronger contests than this and he looks to have been found a golden opportunity to shed the maiden tag. Buc’s Investmint and Tithed have both proven consistency personified in recent months and can battle it out for minor honours.
APPRAISED finished third in a stronger event on his penultimate start and may prove the answer to a wide-open event. Eyes Of Glory has his first try at the distance and is respected while Told It All hinted at ability when third on debut and he can prove the pick of the remainder.

FOOT RUB LOVE is capable at this level and can take full advantage of the drop in class. Blazing Ruby should also be thereabouts and Royalglitz is an interesting newcomer.
PROJECTED isn’t going to get many better opportunities than this and can put his experience to good use from a good draw in stall three. Power Walker and Bunster are the main dangers.
LADY LOVE finished with a wet sail to win well from Blazing Brooke (Pleasant Buffy fifth) over C&D last month and she could be hard to deny a double if in the same mood today. Luna and Fun Paddy have their sights lowered and are serious threats.
FASHION MO caught the eye flashing home for second once the penny dropped on debut over this C&D and, with that run under her belt, she is fancied to go one better today. Windfall Profit has experience on her side and returned with a close second over 1m here last month, while All Others Follow warrants the utmost respect on debut for Chad Brown.
Philosophy has been impressive the last twice but his hat-trick plans could be thwarted by STORM ADVISORY, who has been holding his own in stronger races at Gulfstream. Cuestion De Tiempo is likely to make his presence felt, and Lost In Limbo is a threat if fit enough to do himself justice.
Little Natalia made light of an absence when running right away from her rivals over C&D, but VAUNT also has a bright future and is preferred on the basis that she should relish the drop from a mile. Not Regret and Wowee can fight it out for third.
