A few of these have already been allocated handicap marks and CUECA comes out best of those. She also posted a better effort when racing in soft ground for the first time at Newbury last month and gets the nod. By Rights isn't far behind the selection at the weights and can figure if taking to the surface while Baltic Brave should have come on from his racecourse debut at Nottingham. It's difficult to make a strong case for any of the remainder on what little they've shown so far.
