Brian Meehan's Oasis Dream newcomer Alkhayyam and Richard Hannon's Proposed have some significant entries and are worth a market check in this. But Richard Hughes could have presumably ridden the latter and has instead chosen HOLLAND PARK. The latter was sent off favourite on his debut at Newmarket so should be capable of better and is just preferred to Sandown third Elm Park. Pensax Boy was second at Doncaster in June but looked wayward under pressure at Redcar next time. Acolyte may be best of the rest but might need this.
