In depth

Verdict

Wild China gained his first ever success over this C&D a week ago and, with his 3lb rise being wiped out by Danny Mullins' claim, he'll make a bold bid to complete a quick double. Ferryview Place won here in July and has been running well enough to get involved as he's not badly handicapped but it's ELJOWZAH who gets the nod. She's only had four races in her life and ran so well on her handicap debut at Gowran that a first success looks imminent. Crystal Wings ran poorly in two starts here a year ago but has definitely improved on Turf and isn't out of this.
