There doesn't look much between most of these on known form. Stopped Out is a six times winning hurdler and doesn't have an impossible task conceding weight all round. Gamble looked a sure-fire future winner when close up at Newmarket but ran poorly at Leicester next time. Flemish School tries this trip for the first time but should be suited judged on her staying-on run at Kempton and can go close. Fantasy In Blue could do with a victory for the paddocks and she ran better at Epsom but the vote goes to WIZARA, who made a fair debut at Newbury last month and looked in need of this trip when staying on over 1m2f at Goodwood three weeks ago.
