Dark Alliance (15/8), Champagne Pink (7/2), Scribner Creek (11/2), Barnaby Brook (13/2), Sooqaan (10/1), Zefferino (10/1), Buckland Beau (12/1), What Usain (14/1), Steal The Scene (20/1), Spes Nostra (50/1)

Verdict

A fairly compact finale, with the gaze of the masses likely pointed towards Scribner Creek given his understandably well publicised 'debut' for Ivan Furtado. Champagne Pink adores Dunstall Park, but she faces a tougher task these days from her elevated mark, and isn't certain to relish this drop back in trip. Sooqaan is another to have run up a sequence (at Southwell), whilst at the other end of the spectrum, the long time winless Buckland Beau is now very well handicapped. However, the thriving DARK ALLIANCE rates as the selection. He ran very well when seeking to land a hat-trick last week, and lost little in defeat to a pair of talented handicappers in their respective grades (Spare Parts and Right Action). If anything, a step up in trip should suit, and he's capable of registering one more success from his current but rising handicap mark of 74.
