Arugula was impressive second up when he won at this track and has been consistent without winning since. The inside gate is an advantage as it will allow the horse to be ridden close to the speed and hopefully he can stay out of trouble. With a bitof luck he will be right in the finish. Cut The Mustard was soundly beaten in the Grafton Cup last start and will appreciate the step back in class as well as distance.
Her record at the mile is quite good and prior to the Grafton Cup run she had strung two wins together. She has drawn well in a big field and can return to the winners stall this afternoon. Finne Realta has been in the money at her last three races. She has drawn ok and should make her own luck near to the speed today and she can break through for a much deserved win.

Smart Call was a good winner on the AW at Newcastle last time out at Group Three level so commands respect but would have a bit to find on these terms rated with several, plus it might be something of nothing, but at the time of writing Weds the Stoute team are just 1 from Forest Ranger was a good winner of the Huxley Stakes at this level back in May at Chester but has since run last of seven in the Eclipse so is another that needs to bounce back — the ease in grade should help on that front though.
